Viruses survive in fresh water with a “footprint” on plastic, the study found Plastics

Researchers have found that dangerous viruses can remain infectious for up to three days in fresh water when traced to plastic. Enteric viruses that cause diarrhea and stomach upset, such as rotavirus, have been found to survive in water by attaching to microplastics, tiny particles less than 5 mm in length. They remain infectious, researchers …
