Novel coronavirus survives longer on smooth surfaces: Researchers

SARS-Cov-2, the virus responsible for Covid-19 disease, can remain infectious on surfaces such as banknotes, phone screens, and stainless steel for 28 days, far longer than thought, said researchers from Australia’s national science agency. The agency said the virus survives longer on smooth surfaces like paper notes rather than porous ones such as cotton and lasts longer at lower temperatures.

That’s bull. It’s already been shown/proven that viruses survive on surfaces for no longer than a few days.

Always look at the examples used. Phone screens people generally agree are probably quite unhygienic. A lot of people use them while taking a dump. Stainless steel. Again we are already on board with that because of this like surface cleaner adverts. Both are solid flat easily cleanable surfaces. But these are actually there to reinforce the cash one. Because getting rid of cash as long has been a government goal for a long time just the public wanted to keep it for a variety of reasons. But now they are on board with every one and everything has the rona. Your cash is dirty get rid of that too. Once your cash is gone both the bank and the government are going to be happy. The banks will be able to charge you to hold your finances as there will be no physicality to your $ £ €. The government will pretty much have a paper trail on your existence.

It survives 28 days on an American flag, but dies on contact with BLM or Antifa swag.

Just another convenience. Keep us in our homes and scared so they can fight over the world.

Surviving enough to be detected is different than surviving and still being infectious. This same finding was discovered in the spring and a few days later they admitted it wasn't actually contagious anymore but was still detectable.
