Hydrus and Coronavirus…

The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered how we will live our lives.

Awareness of emerging pathogens, awareness of proper hygiene, awareness of how we move amongst each other, is the new reality.             

Everything is impacted – medical facilities, public transport, schools, office buildings, entertainment venues – but the chemicals we choose to combat the viruses can have dangers of their own.

Conventional disinfectants pose known health risks, from skin corrosion, to rashes, eye damage and toxicity. Evidence is pointing to endocrine disruption (reproductive health), chronic respiratory conditions and other alarming consequences.  

Furthermore, recent decades have seen heightened focus on environmental responsibility and alarm over the hazardous consequences of too many chemicals leaving residues, or lingering in water, air and soil. And all during this unprecedented time of a global crisis that demands responses. 

For the sake of people, property and planet, as we face this current enemy and future emerging pathogens, better, safer solutions are needed.

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.
