Coronavirus (COVID-19) 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 or coughing, by patients or carriers, contain virus particles and are a source of infection.
The Coronavirus is a protein molecule containing DNA, it doesn't live, so can't be killed. It becomes dangerous when absorbed by living cells. But the virus is fragile, protected by an outer layer of fat, so the key to destroying the virus is to break its protective layer.
EndoSan is a silver-stabilised hydrogen peroxide solution (H₂O₂), which is ideal and very effective at breaking down the protective layer of the virus molecule and destroying it.
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 a 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 number 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 chelated silver. This type of formulation is also called silver stabilized 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, shipping and residential homes.
EndoSan is also used for decontamination and disinfection by fogging. Especially because an important transmission route of the coronavirus is airborne aerosols caused by coughing, it is important to disinfect the air in rooms where carriers of the virus have been present.
WARNING - Due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, many offices and buildings have been closed, with water stagnant in pipes and tanks, micro organisms will flourish.
