This handbook was written by the clinicians from the First Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine (FAHZU) “who just returned from the frontlines of fighting the pandemic.”

The Handbook Editor-in-Chief, Professor Tingbo Liang who is also the Chairman of FAHZU states in the Foreword that “To ensure that this war can be won, we must first make sure that our medical staff is guaranteed sufficient resources, including experience and technologies.”

Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1

We evaluated the stability of SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV-1 in aerosols and on various surfaces and estimated their decay rates using a Bayesian regression model (see the Methods section in the Supplementary Appendix, available with the full text of this letter at NEJM.org). SARS-CoV-2 nCoV-WA1-2020 (MN985325.1) and SARS-CoV-1 Tor2 (AY274119.3) were the strains used. Aerosols (<5 μm) containing SARS-CoV-2 (105.25 50% tissue-culture infectious dose [TCID50] per milliliter) or SARS-CoV-1 (106.75-7.00 TCID50 per milliliter) were generated with the use of a three-jet Collison nebulizer and fed into a Goldberg drum to create an aerosolized environment. The inoculum resulted in cycle-threshold values between 20 and 22, similar to those observed in samples obtained from the upper and lower respiratory tract in humans.
