Common misconceptions have prevailed for years about the spread of disease through the air or via direct skin contact. But research regarding the H1N1 virus concluded that it can live on surfaces for nearly 24 hours, and is still contagious for up to eight hours after initial contact with pathogens. This means that fixed hard surfaces are a potentially growing concern for the transmission of bacteria and germs.
