New Realm Test #5 Results Published Today

For your reading enjoyment.
After a quick review:
Highlights are results for leather and synthetic leather book coverings which demonstrate those materials holding on to the virus.
In contrast, cotton, nylon webbing and polyolefin show degradation of the virus as unmeasurable after 1 hour.

"Results show that after eight days of quarantine, SARS-CoV-2 virus was still detected on leather and synthetic leather materials.
For the polyolefin fabric and nylon webbing, only the amount of virus after the initial 1 hour of drying time could be measured.
No data for the cotton fabric could be collected or reported."

Stay well everyone,
Janet
