The office for the protection of the United States environmental protection Agency (EPA) released a list of disinfectants that will help to protect against coronavirus. About it writes USA Today.
According to the EPA, a list of “suitable products for use against COVID-19” was created in the framework of the Agency’s Emerging Viral Pathogen, manufacturers provided EPA data which “show that their products are effective against viruses that are hard to kill.”
Coronaviruses are so — called viruses with the shell, which means that they are one of the most simple types of viruses that can be destroyed using an appropriate disinfectant.
“Using the proper disinfectant is an important part of preventing and reducing the spread of disease, said the EPA administrator, Andrew Wheeler. — EPA is providing this important information to consumers to help reduce the spread COVID-19”.
The centers for control and disease prevention in USA (CDC) state that “dezinfekciya diluted household bleach solutions, alcohol solutions with alcohol content of at least 70% and most common household disinfectants registered with the EPA must be effective.”
