And as it is not alive... it can’t die while it waits right?
Yep. It is definitely won't die. However, over a time period of inactivity the virus will lose infectivity. Once that happens, it's not gonna be a problem.
Can they reproduce with each other outside of a host?
Viruses don't reproduce. They replicate. The genome of a virus contains instructions that specify how it can construct more virus particles. It's like a factory basically. And outside of a host, it absolutely cannot replicate. So No.
Thank you. You is Smart :)
Thanks. I like to use what I learnt to help out in any way😊
Phew I’ll be sure and let “my friend “ know :)
Ok but... if viruses are not alive... how can they die after a day or so on a surface. 🤷♀️?
Well they are alive (somewhat) basically a viruses is a type of cell that can only live in other animals (basically a leech)But they can live for a little while before reaching a new host like if you sneeze onto a tissue.
Corona can lay for 10 days awaiting a host, on stainless steel surfaces
Very good observation!
