Ebola Virus Stability on Surfaces and in Fluids in Simulated Outbreak Environments
Fischer, R., Judson, S. Miazgowicz, K., et al. (2015). Ebola Virus Stability on Surfaces and in Fluids in Simulated Outbreak Environments. Emerging Infectious Diseases. 21(7):1243-1246.
The authors simulated environmental conditions and found that the Ebola virus remains active for a longer time on hospital surfaces than it does in African conditions. The virus also lives longer in liquid than it does in dried blood.
