Edit: apparently the cited study does say that no viable SARS-COV-2 virus was found on the copper after 4 hours.

Original comment:

Dr. Peter Hotez said on the podcast The Drive ( that a new (March 13) paper ( found that SARS-COV-2 could last for 8-24 hours on copper. If you search for "copper" in the show notes you'll find the 8-24 hour figure.

My sleep doctor gave me a copy of "Sink Into Sleep: A step-by-step workbook for reversing insomnia" by Judith R. Davidson, PhD. I had mentioned that sometimes I'm up at night for a couple of hours. This is pretty rare for me so I haven't actually practiced CBT-I. I think my doctor was just playing it safe and/or is programmed to give out this book if people mention difficulties sleeping.

Anecdote: I have mild sleep apnea. My only symptom was feeling like my sleep was not as refreshing as it should be. I got more and more tired over time while it went without treatment.

I did an at-home test for sleep apnea which didn't find anything (I may not have correctly strapped everything to myself, unsure), but a lab test found it.
