US Scientist Replied: Coronavirus Can Live in the Refrigerator?


Saying that all products placed in the refrigerator should be cleaned beforehand. Greene recommends disinfecting it by taking a few minutes before putting it in the refrigerator.

One of the leading virologists at the Gladstone Institute in San Francisco. Warner Greene recommends that products placed in the refrigerator be disinfected beforehand.

Speaking to the NBC Bay Area, Greene said, “Coronaviruses are by nature ‘sticky’ viruses.” She said: “Although they die quickly on these surfaces, they can survive for a surprising amount of time on the surfaces.”

Studies are ongoing for the coronavirus strain that causes Kovid-19 (called different subtypes of a virus with genetic differences between them). A study conducted by the American Microbiology Association in 2010, based on the relationship between Kovid-19 and SARS coronavirus, examined the relationship between the temperature and humidity of the virus. As a result of the study, it was seen that coronavirus developed in low humidity and 4 degree temperature environment. This indicates the ambient conditions inside the refrigerator.

Dr. Greene recommends disinfection of products from the market before putting them in the freezer or refrigerator, as she is familiar with the 2010 study, but is familiar. “The point is, don’t put anything in your fridge without decontaminating it (without getting rid of germs) first,” said Dr.. Greene, together with her husband, said that they wiped the boxes and packaging of the products with a cloth moistened with disinfectant.

Dr. The following steps can be followed to disinfect the products brought according to Greene:

Preferably prepare an alcohol-based disinfectant bowl: There are two things that can dissolve the coronavirus’s membrane: You can use alcohol or soap and water. If you don’t have access to the disinfectant, you can mix about a third of a cup’s bleach with a gallon of water. It is also possible to add some soap to warm water.

Dip the cloth in the cleaning water and wring it: Wipe the surfaces of the food containers (bags, cans, bottles, cans) thoroughly.

Do not clean for refrigerator only: Clean food containers even before entering cellars or other cabinets.

Wash the bags: Wash your reusable cloth bags. Machine wash if it is suitable for the washing machine.

Dr. also gave a recommendation for the products in the freezer. Greene says it is a good idea to clean frozen products anyway, since it is uncertain whether the virus will survive at subzero temperatures.

Dr. Greene and her team have long worked on HIV to find vaccines and treatments. He is now working with his team, stating that they are working against the Kovid-19 virus, explaining: “We are working hard to determine whether a developed anti-viral drug can be produced for this coronavirus, which can be quickly introduced.”

While the new type of coronavirus, known as SARS-COV-2, is showing its effect all over the world, scientists continue to work to find new treatment methods and vaccines. According to the data in Worldometers, the number of cases reached 946 thousand 875. While more than 200 thousand people recovered, more than 48 thousand people died.
