EPA Releases List Of Best Disinfectants To Use Against Coronavirus
Breitbart ^ | 3-7-2020 | Amy Furr

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a list Tuesday of qualified disinfectants to use for protection against the coronavirus.

“The EPA-registered disinfectant products on our Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2 list have qualified under EPA’s emerging viral pathogen program for use against SARS-CoV-2, a coronavirus that causes COVID-19,” the website stated.

Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, which means they are among the easiest types to kill with the appropriate disinfectant, according to the EPA.

There may be additional disinfectants that meet the criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2. EPA will update this list with additional products as needed,” the agency stated.

Some of the product brands on the EPA’s list include:

•Clorox Healthcare Bleach Germicidal Cleaner Spray
•Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
•Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist
•Professional Lysol Disinfectant Spray
•Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes
•Peak Disinfectant Wipes
•Sani-Prime Germicidal Spray
•Sani-Cloth Prime Germicidal Disposable Wipe

The virus is believed to be spread by people in close contact with each other and through respiratory droplets produced when a person infected with the virus coughs or sneezes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website.

“It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads,” the site read.

In a press release Thursday, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said using the right disinfectant is a huge part of preventing and reducing the spread of illness.

“There is no higher priority for the Trump Administration than protecting the health and safety of Americans,” he noted, adding, “EPA is providing this important information in a public and transparent manner

I bought six gallons of regular laundry bleach and three new spray bottles. (also, a case of Costco toilet paper and paper towels)

I still have all my face masks that are left over from the last pandemic....2009, I think.(ahem)

I use lots of cholesterol-rich substances like butter and eggs and they die of heart disease. If you could get them to smoke it would be even faster.

Touch screens in restaurants and fast food? Asking for a friend.

They did not include hand sanitizers on the list. I suppose that that is because they believe that the best defense is clean surfaces.

For those who don’t want to use chemicals, Lemon juice is known to be a good disinfectant and it smells much better than bleach.

Menus have to be the worst.

When I go out to eat, I try not to touch anything until I’ve ordered my food and washed my hands.

“Menus have to be the worst.”

Absolutely. Menus are the worst, I think.

Does Nancy, Rod’s sis at CDC concur? How about the L4 lab directors? The Wuhan ones might be most helpful.

Enjoy life. It can go by fast and unexpectedly. As Castenada said in The Teachings of Don Juan...death is over your left shoulder...or the great Satchel Paige...I never look back, something might be gaining on me.

If liquid bleach is not available in the laundry section, check swimming pool supplies. It might not be named Clorox, but a pool liquid with 10% Sodium Chloride is basically the same.

In our linen closet I found two bottles of 91% rubbing alcohol. I’d think if you just funneled that in to small spray bottles, it would do the trick. I’m guessing the aloe is just to make it softer ...?
