The Coronavirus responsible for the current pandemic situation is an enveloped virus that probably originates from animals and is currently further transmitted between humans. The exact route of transmission is still under investigation. However it is clear that the small water droplets (aerosols) expelled during sneezing and coughing by patients contain virus particles and are a source of infection.
Personal hygiene measures are the first step in preventing the spread of viruses. Next to that, it is important to regularly clean and disinfect surfaces that may be contaminated and thereby act as transmission route. This requires a disinfectant that is able to effectively kill the pathogens.
EndoSan is a disinfectant with virucidal efficacy under clean and dirty conditions. The definition of a virucidal biocide is to reduce the amount of viruses with a log 4, this is a 10,000-fold reduction.
EndoSan is a unique and strong broad spectrum disinfectant based on hydrogen peroxide and silver. This type of formulation is also called silver stabilised peroxide. Both components have a synergistic effect against viruses. EndoSan has been used globally for the disinfection of drinking systems, hard surfaces in various areas such as industry, intensive livestock industry, medical facilities, ships and residential homes.
EndoSan is also used for decontamination and disinfection by fogging. Especially because an important transmission route of coronavirus is airborne aerosols caused by coughing, it is important to disinfect the air in rooms where carriers of the virus have been present.
