New Coronavirus Pandemic
In the central Chinese city of Wuhan, there has been an extraordinary accumulation of pneumonia.
These are caused by a previously unknown coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
The infection has spread across the globe and is now classified as a Pandemic.
Sanosil Disinfectants S003, S006, Sanosil S010 and S015 are known to be effective against viruses although it should be pointed out that no data on the effectiveness against the Sars-CoV-2 the virus that causes Covid 19 are available yet due to the new nature of the virus.
However, there is good evidence of disinfection efficacy against similar viruses. Sanosil S010 has, according to EN14476 – 2013, viricidal activity as a hard surface disinfectant. Enveloped viruses such as Coronaviruses are the least resistant to inactivation by disinfection. The structure of these viruses includes a lipid envelope, which is easily compromised by most disinfectants. Once the lipid envelope is damaged, the integrity of the virus is compromised, thereby neutralizing its ability to infect.”
