The Ebola virus travels from person to person through direct contact with infected body fluids. But how long can the virus survive on glass surfaces or countertops? How long can it live in wastewater when liquid wastes from a patient end up in the sewage system? In an article published Dec. 9 in the journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters, Charles Haas, PhD, LD Betz professor in Drexel University’s College of Engineering and head of the Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Department, and a team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, review the latest research to find answers to these questions.
