WATA HELPS FIGHT COVID-19





WHO GUIDELINES

Sodium hypochlorite is mentioned in the WHO guidelines for preventing CoV-2-CoRSA infections. The lipidic external structure of corona viruses does not make them very resistant to this type of commonly used disinfectant:

In the hospital setting, medical areas must be disinfected at least twice a day with a 0.1% concentrated solution. Floors and surfaces affected by human secretions or blood require a concentration of 0.5%

In households where a case of COVID-19 is suspected or proven, contact areas such as bathrooms, door handles, etc. should be sprayed with a 0.1% concentrated solution after cleaning.

Here are the full WHO recommendations

SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE

A study published in the “Journal of Hospitaline Infection” cross-checks the results of 22 different studies and shows that sodium hypochlorite can disinfect surfaces in 1 minute, even though the virus can have up to 9 days of persistence on plastic, for example.
