How to properly disinfect door handles
How do I disinfect properly?
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) believes that it cannot be excluded that the corona virus Sars-CoV-2 is transmitted via surfaces. According to a US laboratory study, it can survive on plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours.
The studies do not say how high the risk of infection via contaminated surfaces actually is. But in places where many people still pass by (offices, production plants, trade) and touch door handles, it may well make sense to disinfect them at regular intervals.
However, the most important measure to prevent infection is to keep your distance from others and wash your hands regularly.
