Coronavirus can survive prolonged exposure to high temperatures

In the experiment, scientists found that typically hot temperatures of 60°Celsius (140° Fahrenheit) used to disinfect research labs are ineffective against the coronavirus. Instead, the pathogen may only be killed in a maintained temperature of 92 °C for 15 minutes.The researchers concluded that using chemicals rather than heat to disinfect would be the best way to go.
