Please note that there have been global shortages of hand sanitizers, and not all disinfectants have received EPA acceptance for use against emerging viral threats. Sanitis is still able to offer these products, but please place your orders soon in order to ensure your delivery arrives in a timely manner.
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a scary disease that can kill people, especially people with weaker immune systems. The scariest thing about it is that the strain is new, and we don't know much about it or how it is spreading differently from other coronaviruses, so we must take every precaution to avoid contamination and properly maintain hand hygiene and room disinfection with approved disinfectants. Fortunately, Sanitis is here to help!
Scientists and clinicians are very familiar with other strains of coronavirus and how easy they are to prevent and kill, but COVID-19 is new and mostly unknown, and that's what makes it scary. Given the level of travel and interaction in society these days, you may never know where you picked up any illness, and that adds to the fear. All of us need to take precautions to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19, and every other disease for that matter. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html). As leading providers of cutting-edge infection control products, including disinfectants, hand sanitizers, and cleaners, the team at Sanitis feels that it's necessary to help put this disease into perspective and provide facts about it. Here are some things you should know:
Coronavirus is a respiratory illness that spreads in the same manner as the flu: through breathing in droplets from coughs or sneezes of an infected person, or potentially by touching a contaminated surface and then touching your face or mouth.
It is very unlikely that wearing a mask will protect you from inhaling novel coronavirus because the viral agent (virion), like other viral agents, is so small that it will probably pass through the pores in the mask. (Click on the CDC link above for verification.) Masks can help to prevent the spread of coronavirus (and the flu and other viruses, for that matter) by anyone who is already ill because the mask will help to prevent droplets containing the virus from being sneezed or coughed into to environment.
If you think you have the Coronavirus, please contact a medical professional immediately. If you are concerned with contracting the Coronavirus there are some things you can do to lower the risk of infection. Stay Home, Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, Avoid large crowds of people in public. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands, Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
The use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers might help to protect against novel coronavirus, however please be aware that alcohol-based sanitizers are only effective while they're wet. Your hands become recontaminated immediately after the alcohol evaporates and you touch anything or shake someone’s hand. Hand santizers that continue to protect for hours after one application provide greater ongoing protection. Sanitis offers three clinically proven persistent hand sanitizers to protect you, your patients, and employees.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to spread, and whenever possible, disinfectants which meet the EPA's standards for use against emerging threats should be used on surfaces that are likely to become contaminated by pathogens. Sanitis has six disinfectants that meet those standards, and we can help you to choose the disinfectant that will meet your needs the best. In fact, school districts across the country have been telling their communities that they will use our disinfectant to disinfect their classrooms and buses because of its safety and effectiveness.
Coronaviruses are relatively easy to kill outside of the body with hospital-grade disinfectants that meet the EPA's standards for emerging pathogenic threats. As mentioned above, Sanitis has six disinfectants that meet this criteria. Coronaviruses are categorized as "enveloped" viruses meaning that each particle, (virion) is surrounded by a lipid layer (fat) that protects it inside the body. Once an enveloped virion is outside the body, it can be destroyed simply by disrupting the protective lipid lining. Email us for more information on the distinctions between enveloped and non-enveloped viruses, and which disinfectants we recommend for non-enveloped viruses:firstname.lastname@example.org)
