Below is World Health Organizations, WHO data on Coronavirus resistant level
First data on stability and resistance of SARS coronavirus compiled by members of WHO laboratory network
The below table provides the first compilation of data on resistance of the SARS Coronavirus against environmental factors and disinfectants. This information has been provided by Members of the WHO multi-center collaborative network on SARS diagnosis. More detailed information on methods utilized and material used is being compiled and will be available shortly. The major conclusions from these studies are:

Virus is stable in faeces(and urine) at room temperature for at least 1-2 days.
Virus is more stable (up to 4 days) in stool from diarrhea patients (which has higher pH than normal stool).
Virus loses infectivity after exposure to different commonly used disinfectants and fixatives.
