Although the aerosol method is a virus’ core transmission mechanism, it can also spread through physical contact.
One risk is that the virus enters the body after people get it on their hands, as it sticks to a range of surfaces.

The virus is surprisingly versatile, but the amount of it which survives often varies depending on the item.
