The year 2020 will remain in the minds of people as the year of Coronavirus. Scientists are finding new information regarding the pattern about coronavirus and there is still lot to be researched. While we aren't 100% sure when this pandemic will get over and where it sticks around the surfaces, we surely know that your phone MAY have coronavirus on it!

Remove your phone from case/cover and switch it off. (Make sure you wait till the phone is completely off else it may cause harm to your device). Use tapes to cover these ports and remove once the cleaning process is completed.
Polish it up with a microfibre cloth gently.
Gently use Lysol Wipes (or any other sanitizer wipes) on the screen and make sure you cover your Headphone and Charging ports properly. After cleaning, make sure you throw away the wipes into dustbin ONLY and wash your hands for atleast 20 seconds.
Let it dry for atleast 5-10 minutes
Wipe your phone with a paper towel or tissue paper to clean up any minute droplets left on your phone just in case.
