Answer ( 1 )


    Yes, Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria can indeed survive on surfaces for varying periods of time. How long they can persist depends on factors like temperature, humidity, and the type of surface. On dry surfaces, E. coli can survive for several hours to a few days, while on moist or wet surfaces, they may survive for longer periods. However, proper cleaning and disinfection can effectively remove and kill these bacteria, reducing the risk of contamination and infection.
