Johnstown, NY —The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reviewed and approved independent lab testing submitted by Spray Nine Corporation for Spray Nine Cleaner/Disinfectant’s efficacy against the pandemic 2009 H1N1 Influenza A Virus. The product was proven to disinfect against the virus requiring just a 30 second contact time, a claim now added to their EPA Master Label.
With the second wave of the H1N1 flu on the decline, experts predict that a third wave may hit early in 2010. The flu season normally lasts 5 months, of which traditionally the months of February and March are the most severe.
Experts such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise that risk groups such as children under the age of 18 and pregnant women be vaccinated against the virus. They also recommend frequent hand washing, the use of hand sanitizers when soap and water are unavailable, and the disinfection of hard surfaces frequently touched such as doorknobs, tables, handles and more.
According to the CDC, at least 1 in 6 Americans have contracted the H1N1 virus. It is estimated that 200,000 people have been hospitalized because of their sickness and about 10,000 have been killed by H1N1. Of these 10,000 approximately 1,100 were children under 18 years of age.
This new disinfecting claim now heads up a long list of germs killed by Spray Nine Cleaner/Disinfectant including E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA-CA, RSV, Hepatitis B & C, Norwalk/Norovirus, etc. Spray Nine disinfects against viruses in 30 seconds and bacteria in 45 seconds and sanitizes in just 10 seconds.
