In what conditions does COVID-19 survive the longest?
Coronaviruses die very quickly when exposed to the UV light in sunlight. Like other enveloped viruses, SARS-CoV-2 survives longest when the temperature is at room temperature or lower, and when the relative humidity is low (<50%).
What are the organs most affected by COVID‐19?
The lungs are the organs most affected by COVID‐19
Can COVID-19 be transmitted through water?
Fact: Water or swimming does not transmit the COVID-19 virusThe COVID-19 virus does not transmit through water while swimming. However, the virus spreads between people when someone has close contact with an infected person.
How long does the virus that causes COVID-19 last on surfaces?
Recent research evaluated the survival of the COVID-19 virus on different surfaces and reported that the virus can remain viable for up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel, up to four hours on copper, and up to 24 hours on cardboard.
When Will travel restrictions be lifted UK?
U.K. to lift all travel restrictions on February 11.
Can unvaccinated people travel to UK?

Is New Zealand border open?

What are some of the ways by which COVID-19 is transmitted?
COVID-19 transmits when people breathe in air contaminated by droplets and small airborne particles. The risk of breathing these in is highest when people are in close proximity, but they can be inhaled over longer distances, particularly indoors.

What is the difference between people who have asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic COVID-19?

Who are at higher risk of developing serious illness from COVID-19?
Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
How long can the virus that causes COVID-19 survive on surfaces after being expelled from the body?
After being expelled from the body, coronaviruses can survive on surfaces for hours to days. If a person touches the dirty surface, they may deposit the virus at the eyes, nose, or mouth where it can enter the body and cause infection.
Do smokers get more severe symptoms of COVID-19 if infected?
Smoking any kind of tobacco reduces lung capacity and increases the risk of many respiratory infections and can increase the severity of respiratory diseases. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that primarily attacks the lungs. Smoking impairs lung function making it harder for the body to fight off coronaviruses and other respiratory diseases. Available research suggests that smokers are at higher risk of developing severe COVID-19 outcomes and death.
