Abstract

            Based on a review of literature studies, the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus outside the human body and their persistence in the external environment. According to studies, the virus was found on the surface of almost all objects and facilities that make up hospitals. In 83% of cases, the highest concentration of the virus was found on mobile phones. The lifespan of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the environment, on various objects and equipment, as well as the optimal temperature conditions for the loss of its activity and death depend on the initial concentration of the virus, the type and structure of the virus. object surface, ambient temperature and relative humidity. The long viability of the virus indicates the need for cleaning and disinfection of surfaces of various objects and hand hygiene.
