nCoV-19 lives around 5 days on common surfaces, up to 28 days on optimal surface/temperature/humidity, and minutes to hours on porous materials.    It's covered in this paper which also includes efficacy of various disinfectants.  The first table is survival time on various surfaces.    

At room temperature, nCoV-19 (aka HCoV-229E) persists longer at 50% relative humidity than at 20% RH when at "normal temperatures"

For an idea:
Steel - 8 - 24 hours at room temperature (RT), but 28 days at 40°F and 20% humidity.  Higher or lower humidity drastically impacts persistence.
At "Normal" Temp 68-86°F (20-30°C)
Aluminum - 2-8 hours
Metals - 5 days
Wood  - 4 days
Paper  - 3 hour to 5 days depending on initial load/amount of virions
Glass  - 4 days to 5 days
Plastics - 4 - 9 days (longer the higher the viral load/contamination)
Silicone Rubber - 5 Days (Be careful when borrowing a fleshlight)
Latex Gloves - 8 hours
Disposable Gown (Tyvek) - 1 hour to 2 Days depending on initial level of contamination
Ceramics - 5 days
Teflon - 5 days

While I'm typing all this, here are the best disinfectants (in order of paper above)
3log10 is 99.9%,  4log10 is 99.99%, 5 log10 is 99.999%, etc.  
Ethanol   4.0 log10  to > 5.9  log10 after 30 seconds 70% to 95% respectively (other biologicals survive longer with 90%+ alcohol, NOT nCoV-19)
2-Propanol  > 3.3 log10 in 30 seconds
BZK/Benzalkonium chloride  0 - 4.0 log10 after 10 Minutes
Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach) - 0.21% (2100 ppm concentration)  > 4.0 log10 after 30 seconds
Sodium Hypochlorite (Bleach) - <=0.01% (<100 ppm concentration)  0.3 - 2.8 log10  10 Minutes
Formaldehyde - above 0.7% concentration  > 3.0 log10 in 10 Minutes
Glutardialdehyde - 0.5% to 2.5% > 4.0 log10  after 2-5 Minutes
Povidone iodine > 4.0 log10 after 15 seconds

More detail and sources are in the linked paper.  I merged together the concentrations and gave a range to save typing in the summary above, there may even be typos and errors.

UV Info:

Dosage Chart in µJ/cm²  (aka µW-s/cm²)  Human virii around around 6-8mJ/cm², so 6 W Bulb would need to be within 3" for 3-5 seconds, over every square centimeter

A 6 W UV bulb is 2250 µJ/cm²  (2.25 mJ) per second at 3"    So to get a 100 mJ dose, need ~45 seconds to disinfect, double the wattage, double the intensity.  (Mercury bulbs, which are 254 nm, are "SW" or Short Wave).  280nm is optimal for DNA destruction, but only unimaginably expensive LEDs can hit that exact wavelength.   This chart has the required dose of 254 nm (mercury vapor) bulbs.

Here's the tricky part:  Double the distance and the dose needs to be increased by 4x, (same for 1/4x dose @1.5")

A Mercury Vapor bulb will be marked "254 nm" or Hg.   It will also be CLEAR
A Phosphor UV-C bulb will be marked "SW/LW" or "Wideband" with phosphors to get more into the 280-300 range, these will be bluish white opaque, like a fluorescent bulb.  The wide band are rare and more spendy, but are what's used in steri-pens, for example

both types the bulb will turn on for 6000 hours, but only about 1000 hours usable due to darkening of the quartz envelope (Hg), or phosphors going bad (fluorescent UV-C).  Similar to tanning bed bulbs going bad, except in a much shorter wavelength.

Please do basic vetting of information before posting, and have a bit of common courtesy.

•  Do basic vetting make sure it's not sensationalist fake news.  Tweets with 'shocking' titles often are, some are real, just make sure which you're dealing with by simple searching.  Make sure it's not already posted with different headlines from 5 years ago, tineye.com is good for that.

•  Ensure it's not been posted before by either reading the thread, or using bing/duckgo/searx/oogle with 'HeadlineIWantToPost site:ar15.com" to see if it's been posted a dozen times already.

•  If you disagree with something posted, please don't get emotional and spam a page by replying to Every Single Post individually and clogging up a page.  That blurs the line as to who is spamming.  Just scroll and wave.  If it is dangerous info or insulting/trolling, hit the report button INSTEAD OF the "Quote Reply" button.

People intentionally re-posting fake/old news will be considered spam.   We all make mistakes, but try anyway.  We're on a fine line between "Nothing is happening" and "Panic, quit job, sell house get on sailboat now!".  That area in the middle is where we should be right now, able to accept either extreme as a possibility, but not a promise or guarantee.

Detailed reading on heme theory Chloroquine use (PDF)

 The virus is a positive-strand RNA virus with high homology to bat coronavirus. In this study, conserved domain analysis, homology modeling, and molecular docking were used to compare the biological roles of certain proteins of the novel coronavirus. The results showed the ORF8 and surface glycoprotein could bind to the porphyrin, respectively.At the same time, orf1ab, ORF10, and ORF3a proteins could coordinate attack the heme on the 1-beta chain of hemoglobin to dissociate the iron to form the porphyrin. The attack will cause less and less hemoglobin that can carry oxygen and carbon dioxide.  The lung cells have extremely intense poisoning and inflammatory due to the inability to exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen frequently, which eventually results in ground-glass-like lung images. The mechanism also interfered with the normal heme anabolic pathway of the human body, is expected to result in human disease. According to the validation analysis of these finds, chloroquine could prevent orf1ab, ORF3a, and ORF10 to attack the heme to form the porphyrin, and inhibit the binding of ORF8 and surface glycoproteins to porphyrins to a certain extent, effectively relieve the symptoms of respiratory distress.

TL;DR Thread Summary (humor)


[color=#00ffff]Official Coronavirus guidelines?[/b][/color]

1. Basically, you can't leave the house for any reason, but if you have to, then you can.

2. Masks are useless, but maybe you have to wear one, it can save you, it is useless, but maybe it is mandatory as well.

3. Stores are closed, except those that are open.

4. You should not go to hospitals unless you have to go there. Same applies to doctors, you should only go there in case of emergency, provided you are not too sick.

5. This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster.

6. Gloves won't help, but they can still help.

7. Everyone needs to stay HOME, but it's important to GO OUT.

8. There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes.

9. The virus has no effect on children except those it affects.

10. Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested, plus a few tigers here and there…

11. You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms. Oh, my..

12. In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but eat whatever you have on hand and it's better not to go out, well, but no…

13. It's better to get some fresh air, but you get looked at very wrong when you get some fresh air, and most importantly, you don't go to parks or walk. But don’t sit down, except that you can do that now if you are old, but not for too long or if you are pregnant (but not too old).

14. You can't go to retirement homes, but you have to take care of the elderly and bring food and medication.

15. If you are sick, you can't go out, but you can go to the pharmacy.

16. You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn't wear masks or gloves. But you have to have your groceries decontaminated outside for 3 hours. Pizza too?

17. Every disturbing article or disturbing interview starts with "I don't want to trigger panic, but…"

18. You can't see your older mother or grandmother, but you can take a taxi and meet an older taxi driver.

19. You can walk around with a friend but not with your family if they don't live under the same roof.

20. You are safe if you maintain the appropriate social distance, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance.

21. The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn't say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily.

22. The virus stays in the air - well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel further, maybe.

23. We count the number of deaths but we don't know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were "almost dead" to find out if that's what they will die of…

24. We have no treatment, except that there may be one that apparently is not dangerous unless you take too much (which is the case with all medications).

25. We should stay locked up until the virus disappears, but it will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity, so when it circulates… but we must no longer be locked up for that?

Highly infectious and mutating.

Those pics of the "spacemen" taking temps at the airports and train stations are creepy.

470 cases  17 deaths,  number infected is probably ~ 1000 plus could be 10000

Piss poor biosecurity, piss poor hygiene standards and a billion screaming Chinamen packed into squallor level housing districts. It's honestly surprising this doesnt happen more often. That's before you even begin to consider chinese biological warfare research that may or not have been involved in all of those outbreaks.
