|Scientific Question about survival
Jun 28, 2009
If an incredibly concentrated amount of the virus (as in unnaturally concentrated / far more than what occurs in nature) was placed in a sealed 200 ml container, and left in room temperature WITHOUT any added nutrients (no air exposure), would the virus eventually die by itself?
How long would it take? Days? Weeks? Months?
Does the virus require new cells to survive or can it survive on its own definitely?
Thank you and regards.

Not sure I can answer the question, since I don't know if that experiment has been done and published.
