The head of the agency, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, said on Friday that the risk of infection on contaminated surfaces is very low, and regular washing with soap or detergent can effectively reduce the spread of coronavirus. However, it is still recommended to perform disinfection in the case of suspected or confirmed coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
Varensky also said that atomization, fumigation and large-area spraying or electrostatic spraying are not recommended as the main disinfection methods.
Walensky said wearing masks appropriately, washing hands, and following CDC and federal safety guidelines can reduce surface transmission.
She said that the virus that causes COVID-19 usually spreads from person to person when they are close to each other.
