Hey there!

"Coronavirus-19 ... can live on metal objects for up to 9 days!"

The name of the virus is "severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 " or "SARS-CoV-2" for short (the disease that it causes is COVID-19, which will soon enough become Covid-19 as folk tire of the all caps). Of course viruses are not technically alive, so it is better to say that they are detectable on surfaces for a certain period of time. And in my mind at least, it is not at all clear that detectable equals infective.
