An outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019, and has spread throughout China and to 31 other countries and territories, including the United States1. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses2. There are many enveloped viruses, including HBV, HCV, HIV and influenza. They are pathogenic to humans, meaning that they make you sick. The lipid envelope of these viruses is relatively sensitive and thus can be destroyed by alcohols similar to those used in the EnviroShield® system, such as ethanol or 2-propanol3.
JAN-PRO disinfecting processes follow a proven program that uses the broadest spectrum, hospital-strength disinfectants with maximum killing power. JAN-PRO’s proprietary EnviroShield system has been proven effective against other, similar enveloped viruses4.
