Can COVID-19 live on clothing as well?
It is important to clean your house properly, especially after you were sick and of course, your clothing should be cleaned as well. The new coronavirus can live on surfaces for up to a few days, including your clothes, but you can get rid of it instantly if you wash them.
“COVID-19 can survive on surfaces such as clothes but can be removed by normal washing, so wash items in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Use a warm water setting and dry items completely. Dirty laundry that has been in contact with an unwell person can be washed with other people’s items. To minimize the possibility of dispersing virus through the air, do not shake dirty laundry,” said PHE experts.
