Does your NO-GERMS kill the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)?
The above virus is a new strain of the virus. We have performed the En14476 test against viruses, including earlier strains of coronaviruses, and show efficacy in 60 seconds, with ongoing action against viruses for 60 minutes. However, it is not currently possibly to test against the SARS-CoV-2 strain of the virus.
As noted above the authorities, both the CDC, the World Health Organization and the NHS specifically advise people to wash their hands with Soap and Water or use a hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of this virus. (vii)
NO-GERMS is an alcohol free hand sanitizer, but kills 99.9% of germs for 2-4 hours with actives that remain on the skin to kill viruses and germs, unlike alcohol which stops working the moment it dries on the skin.
Equally, it is recommended to clean surfaces with a good quality disinfectant. (viii) NO-GERMS Fresh and Clean use actives that have been specifically targeted to kill viruses on surfaces and are currently used in NHS hospitals for this purpose.
