- Scientists from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) found that when the virus is carried by the droplets released when someone coughs or sneezes, it remains viable, or able to still infect people, in aerosols for at least three hours. On plastic and stainless steel, viable virus could be detected after three days. On cardboard, the virus was not viable after 24 hours. On copper, it took 4 hours for the virus to become inactivated.
- Almost half of patients with the new coronavirus experience nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Though the virus primarily causes fever or difficulty breathing, these have appeared first in 10% of cases.
- One month after the first case of the coronavirus was reported in the US, Nicholas Reich, a professor of infectious-disease modeling at the University of Mass, Amherst, and Thomas McAndrew, a postdoctoral fellow at the university, started surveying their colleagues on how the virus might unfold in America. The results indicate that experts expect a grim death toll — somewhere in the range of 195,000 deaths in the U.S. by the end of the year. That figure, while massive, is less than one-tenth the number of deaths estimated in a worst-case-scenario model from Imperial College in London which suggested that, without intervention, the coronavirus could cost 2.2 million lives in the U.S.
