The Coronavirus also named COVID-19 can able to spread from one person to another person through surfaces around. Now, the question is whether coronavirus spread through Smartphones.

Also, the person infected with coronavirus on his fingers and if touches in their nose, or other parts of body means will get infected from coronavirus.
CoronaVirus lives up to 96 hours in Smartphones
Smartphones are generally built in materials like Plastic, Glass, Stainless steel and also, metal. According to the World Health Organization, the original SARC-CoV virus on 2013 was stable on glass surfaces for up to 96 hours (four days). Likewise, it lives in stainless steel and plastic surfaces for up to 72 hours (three days).
Similarly, a recent study of National Institute of Health finds that the current novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) can live on surfaces like plastic and stainless steel for up to 72 hours and in glass for up to 96 hours. So, the corona virus can remain on the glass, plastic surfaces for four days and can be infectious if any get contact with that surfaces. Therefore, this applicable to display glass screens of any smart devices like Android smartphones, Apple Smartphones, Apple watches, Laptops, Macbooks, Tablets, SmartWatch displays, Windows PC’s etc,.
