Scientists have found viruses similar to the strain that causes Covid-19 can survive on commonly-worn fabrics for up to three days.


The study by De Montfort University in Leicester tested a model coronavirus on polyester, polycotton and 100% cotton.


The results suggested polyester posed the highest risk.


Microbiologist Dr Katie Laird, who led the study, said the materials, commonly used in healthcare uniforms, posed a transmission risk.
