How long can coronavirus remain infectious in the air and on contaminated surfaces? New study finds that the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, can remain viable on plastic and steel for several days, highlighting the importance of hand washing and surface cleaning amidst the current outbreak. However, the consortium is not the only group harnessing the power of artificial intelligence in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Other scientists are attempting to develop a computer model of the coronavirus, which they hope will aid in the development of new drugs and vaccines. Continuing on from the initial work conducted by the University of Texas at Austin (TX, USA), biochemists from the University of California, San Diego are endeavoring to build the first complete all-atom model of the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus envelope.
