Answer ( 1 )

  1. It doesn’t live at all. First of all, there is no virus in existence called “Corona”. The term coronavirus describes a whole collection of viruses. The ones that often cause the common cold among them. Secondly, viruses are not alive in the strictest sense of the word. They are just snippets of genetic material encased in protein shells. Most do not remain viable for more than a few minutes outside of a living host. SARS, which SARS-CoV-2 is closely related to, could last for a couple of days.
