Many new researches began for this COVID-19 and Princeton university and University California Los Angels are researching and published the summary the following two points.

(1) COVID-19 stay for three hours in the air and stay for three days on the surface like plastic materials.

(2) COVID-19 will be inactive by 50% humidity and 22.22℃ temperature

This result means that COVID-19 virus is extremely infectious. On the other hand this virus has a weak point about humidity.

SARS coronavirus was inactivated below 1% in 2 days by 50% humidity. So the same result of research would be expected for COVID-19 virus, too.

It will be good to use a hot shower in the bathroom to make the humidity of bedrooms rise up.
