No. We think the infection additionally spreads by contact. Hard, sparkly surfaces, for example, plastic, stainless steel, benchtops, and likely glass can support irresistible infection, expelled in the form of droplets, for as long as 72 hours. Be that as it may, the infection quickly degrades during this time. On porous and spongy surfaces, for example, cardboard, paper, texture and hessian, it becomes dormant rather quickly.
As far as surgeries are concerned, they are not recommended by any doctor during this time as the patient has a high risk of contacting coronavirus despite all precautions. Prevention is better than cure. However, if there is an emergency, the procedure must be performed under strict supervision with sterile equipment. The same goes for laparoscopy.
