As health authorities and healthcare institutions worldwide are working to prevent the spread of the Wuhun Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), personal protection and surface disinfection will play critical roles.
As of today, the 2019-nCoV outbreak has killed over 1,000 people and infected more than 45,000 globally as it continues to spread beyond China. The virus has been confirmed in more than 28 countries and territories since it was first detected in the Chinese City of Wuhun in December 2019. It is for critical situations such as this that the EPA developed their Emerging Pathogen Policy some years ago, and which, for the first time, has now been activated.
In short, the EPA’s Emerging Pathogen Policy states that if an existing EPA registered disinfectant has a kill claim against a similar virus, it shall be considered suitable for disinfection against the emerging pathogen.
U.S. health officials are recommending prevention measures in keeping with those deployed.
