The use of many of the items on the EPA’s list also can disinfect against bacterial infection as well. The following is from the EPA press release, please share this out so we can replace fear, with positive action.
What is COVID-19?
For clarification, today’s CoronaVirus is called COVID-19. In my humble opinion, I care less about how and where it came from, and prefer to focus my attention on how it may impact us, and what we can do about it. Hence the sharing of this press release below.
WASHINGTON (March 5, 2020) — “Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a list of EPA-registered disinfectant products that have qualified for use against SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19….
“Using the correct disinfectant is an important part of preventing and reducing the spread of illnesses along with other critical aspects such as hand washing,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “There is no higher priority for the Trump Administration than protecting the health and safety of Americans. EPA is providing this important information in a public and transparent manner on disinfectant products to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.”
…Products appearing on EPA’s list registered disinfectant products have qualified for use against COVID-19 through the agency’s Emerging Viral Pathogen program. This program allows product manufacturers to provide EPA with data, even in advance of an outbreak, that shows their products are effective against harder-to-kill viruses than SARS-CoV-2. It also allows additional communications intended to inform the public about the utility of these products against the emerging pathogen in the most expeditious manner.“
As you would imagine, the list includes a number of common items. Such as
- Chlorine Bleach,
- Lysol, and Purell.
