Zoflora, the UK’s leading disinfectant has released official findings today confirming efficacy against SARS-CoV-2, the strain of coronavirus which causes the COVID-19 illness.
Zoflora has been laboratory tested and proven to kill coronaviruses, including the COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2), and conforms to the latest British standard BS EN14476:2013+A2:2019 when used at 1:40 dilution with a 5 minute contact time, which relates to the virucidal activity of chemical disinfectants.
Dr Nigel Cooper, Director of Development at Thornton & Ross, parent company of Zoflora said, “Given the efficacy of Zoflora against other coronaviruses, we were quite certain that Zoflora would have virucidal activity against the COVID-19 virus. On receipt of the official data, we can confirm that Zoflora does kill the SARS-CoV-2 strain of the virus that has significantly impacted the world we live in today.
As recommended by worldwide health organisations, the best way to protect against coronavirus is through regular hand washing, social distancing, and disinfection. Using a proven disinfectant such as Zoflora on regularly touched surfaces at home, in places of education and in the workplace, is one way to help protect yourself and those you care about.”
Establishing a hygiene routine with some simple, everyday preventative steps can help control bacteria and viruses in the home or workplace. Wiping down desks, keyboards, light switches and surfaces, as well as doors, handles and kitchen and bathroom surfaces will reduce the breeding of bacteria and viruses in areas which come into contact with various people throughout the day.
As concentrated multipurpose disinfectant, Zoflora has been used safely in households for almost 100 years to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, whilst eliminating odours and leaving your beautifully fragrant for up to 24 hours.
Zoflora is also effective against other common household bacteria including E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria, and viruses such as Influenza –Type A (H1N1), Human Herpes Virus, Rotavirus and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
