To our valued professionals, CONCERNING CORONAVIRUS
The WHO today has officially declared the Coronavirus COVID-19 a global pandemic. As a result, many professionals have become concerned about disinfectant product efficacy.
The official term used by disinfectant regulators is “emerging pathogen” From Health Canada:
with a broad spectrum virucide, supported by an efficacy claim against any of: Adenovirus type 5, Bovine Parovirus, Canine Parvovirus, Poliovirus type 1 Reference: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/drug-
Concerning the enveloped emerging viral pathogen Coronavirus “COVID-19” From the US EPA: “A product should be approved by EPA to inactivate at least one large or one small non-enveloped virus to be eligible for use against an enveloped emerging viral pathogen.” These include: (1) Picornaviridae, (2) Parvoviridae, (3) Caliciviridae, (4) Astroviridae, and (5) Polyomaviridae Reference:https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2016- 09/documents/emerging_viral_pathogen_program_guidance_final_8_19_16_001_0.pdf
The most difficult of these benchmarks is Canine parvovirus. BioSURF has the fastest recorded inactivation time worldwide with a 50 second claim. BioTEXT has the second fastest claim at 300 seconds.
Current Information: COVID-19 virus is believed to stay viable on surfaces for 9 days. The news media focus on Hand Sanitizing is important, but surfaces matter just as much.
