What is the Coronavirus?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

The best way to prevent and slow down transmission is be well informed about the COVID-19 virus, the disease it causes and how it spreads. Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using a hand sanitiser frequently and not touching your face.  

The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).

At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, there are many ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments.

Mass alcohol hand sanitiser use during coronavirus could cause superbug ‘armageddon’

Dr Andrew Kemp, head of the Scientific Advisory Board on the British Institute of Cleaning Science, warns overuse can allow bacteria to develop immunity and says handwashing is the best way to stave off coronavirus

The mass use of hand gels during the coronavirus pandemic could cause a superbug “armageddon situation”, an expert has warned.

Dr Andrew Kemp, head of the Scientific Advisory Board on the British Institute of Cleaning Science, said overuse of alcohol-based hand gels will allow other bacteria and viruses on our hands to develop immunity to it. 

People across the world have been advised to use the sanitisers throughout the pandemic, applying them for months to prevent the spread of corona virus.

“At the moment there is no published proof that alcohol gels killed Covid-19 itself”

“Even if they did kill 99.9 percent of all bacteria, there can be more than a million bacteria on your hands at any one time leaving 10,000 alive after sanitisation.

Hydrus is like no other chlorine-based product available.

Hydrus is noncorrosive, non-irritant and safe on skin. With more and more research into pathogen kill times and the effectiveness (or not so) of general alcohol gels and rubs, Hydrus innovative formula ensure elimination of pathogens, bacteria and microorganisms safely.

Here’s a little bit of information on the “chlorine smell” and what it actually means…

With the stronger smell of combined chlorine, this means that more bacteria have reacted and been killed. The stronger the smell, the dirtier a surface would have been in the first place. 

Hydrus in its purest form is odourless, the odour/bleach smell only generates when the liquid comes into contact with germs/bacteria/proteins, generally any filth.  

This causes the reaction and creates combined chlorine. The liquid reacts with proteins and organic matter. Once you smell the “chlorine” smell, you know the reaction has been made and the surface is clean.
