Some solid info on corona viruses including their hardiness in different environmental conditions:
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3509683/?report=classic

It may help answer your earlier question regarding how to sterilize face masks. If I read this paper correctly along with other Internet rabbit-hole reading I've been doing, a 91%-99% isopropyl alcohol soak should deactivate the virus, rendering the masks uninfected again. No idea how compatible various mask materials are with said disinfectant, especially the flapper valve on N95's. But this really is something that should be discussed as people are & will reuse masks when there is no other choice.

Ok great info.

There has been quite a lot of events and info since my last post, I'll have to catch up.

People still very sleepy here, at least in my small group of friends IRL. They're not really understanding the severity of what has already happened and it's not really sinking in when I talk about it. An ex-army contact is very worried about it, but that's about it.
