SIPC Protocol for Microbial Sanitization of Coronavirus :
Corona Virus – Pre-Protection Treatment:
Highly effective against coronavirus
These products are scientifically based biocides and scientifically proven to be effective.
They are diluted before application and sprayed on hard surfaces and equipment. It, therefore, helps to reduce the risk of contamination of surfaces, door handles, tables, or chairs.
Disinfection of public transport terminals, airports, hospitals, clinics, shopping malls, offices, can be done using these disinfectants.
Sanitization is carried out with the following disinfectants:
1. Virex II 256
Broad spectrum disinfectant-Bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal.
Provides a one-stop solution for cleaning, disinfection, and odor control.
The solution does not damage floors, walls, countertops, porcelain or plastics in hospitals, schools daycares, offices, schools, etc.
Disinfects high touch surfaces within minutes.
2. Viroff 753 RTU
Kills viruses and bacteria almost instantaneously on contact.
Its germicidal property is based on the denaturation of cell-surface proteins that are involved in the infective process and on the disruption of cell membrane integrity of microbes.
It is a fast evaporating Sanitizer
Viroff 753 is also suitable for space disinfection by fogging the room.
Virkon is a multi-purpose disinfectant.
It has a wide spectrum of activity against viruses, some fungi, and bacteria.
It contains ozone (potassium peroxymonosulfate), sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, sulfamic acid, and inorganic buffers.
It is used in places where control of pathogens is required.
It has been proven effective against COVID-19
The ability to chemically attack pathogens using multiple approaches has proved in its ability as a biocide.
It is non-irritant to skin or eyes and does not possess a toxic vapor phase
4. SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE SOLUTION :
Frequently touched areas like tabletops, chair handles, pens, diary files, keyboards, mouse, mouse pad, tea/coffee dispensing machines, etc. can especially be cleaned by freshly prepared 1% sodium hypochlorite.
Scientifically proven that sodium hypochlorite is an effective disinfectant having broad applications. Its active ingredient, sodium hypochlorite, is effective in killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
High contact surfaces such elevator buttons, handrails/handles and call buttons, escalator handrails, public counters, Desk cubical, chairs, equipment like telephone, printers/scanners, and other office machines can be cleaned twice daily by wiping/ swapping with a linen/absorbable cloth soaked in 1% sodium hypochlorite.
What is Corona Virus?
Coronaviruses are a family of viruses. There are many different kinds. Some cause diseases such as the common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). In 2019, a new coronavirus was identified as the cause of a disease outbreak that originated in Wuhan City in China. The disease it causes is called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). ‘CO’ stands for corona, ‘VI’ for virus, and ‘D’ for disease and 19 for the year 2019. In March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.
How does the new coronavirus spread?
Coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. People in close proximity of an infected person are therefore at risk of having their mouth, nose or eyes exposed to potentially infective respiratory droplets. Thus it spreads when anyone is : (a) In close contact with an infected person. (b) In contact with droplets from an infected person’s cough or sneeze, (c) Touching objects or surfaces (like doorknobs or tables) that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person, and then touching their mouth or face. Therefore, the transmission of the COVID-19 virus can occur by direct contact with infected people and indirect contact with surfaces in the immediate environment or with objects used by the infected person COVID-19 is a new disease, so there is no existing immunity in our community. This means that COVID-19 could spread widely and quickly.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
The symptoms of COVID-19 can range from very mild to being fatal in people with compromised immune systems. Some people may have only a few symptoms, and some people may show no symptoms at all.
Common signs and symptoms include:
Other symptoms include:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Aches and pains
Loss of taste or smell
