Customer Question

I had ashave around 7 min im really worried to get the virus

Hello again,

As i said earlier, it is unlikely that it will be able to survive for 7 mins on a blade. There have been reports of it surviving for this long on surfaces in ideal conditions meaning it would not have to be exposed to heat or cold or alcohol or anything of this sort. In order for it to survive it would need an environment in which it could survive such as dried blood, if dried blood was present on the blade then it can survive for upto a week. But in the absence of such conditions it wont be able to survive for 7 minutes in most cases.

Sorry for the late reply but i was offline, Anyway yes you DONT have to worry, it is highly unlikely that you got the virus in this manner. But it would be best to get tested after 4 weeks of exposure simply because that will help you to overcome your anxiety regarding this manner. Just relax and once your test comes back negative , which im sure it will, you will be able to sleep more easily and get back to your life.
