A fake message that has been circulating on social media saying:

Message Claiming Coronavirus Lives On A Surface For 12 Hours Is Misleading

As per WHO:

It is not certain how long the virus that causes COVID-19 survives on surfaces, but it seems to behave like other coronaviruses. Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days. This may vary under different conditions (e.g. type of surface, temperature or humidity of the environment).
