: How long does the hcv virus live out side of the body. for example if there was a blood spot on a razor, approxiamtely how long will the virus live?

This virus is known to live outside the body for up to 14 days under ideal laboratory conditions (temperature, etc)

In that blue barber "viricide" it lasted 9 days.

So, not an easy question to answer, except to say that it can live a long time outside the body.

Experts have said that soaking something in bleach for at least 3 minutes "MAY" kill the virus.

Draw your own conclusions.
