Is killing the Wuhan coronavirus that’s grabbing international headlines right now even possible?

The makers of Byotrol24, a newly EPA-registered multi-surface cleaner, say yes.

“Byotrol24 is a scientific breakthrough in germ control,” says Dr. Trevor Francis, chief technology officer of Byotrol. “It has been thoroughly tested and proven to kill a wide range of germs, including coronaviruses, and to control germs for a long period of time. This EPA-registered, nontoxic disinfecting formula with 24-hour sanitizing power can help stop the spread of germs and potentially save lives.”

The company says that, not only does Byotrol24 eradicate coronaviruses and other dangerous viruses, it also kills bacteria for 24 hours with a formulation classified as nontoxic by the EPA. They claim that Byotrol24 is scientifically proven to eliminate coronaviruses, noroviruses, flu and cold viruses, E. coli, salmonella, staph, strep, listeria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other germs.

Not much is known yet about the novel Wuhan coronavirus, though it appears capable of spreading human-to-human and is in the same family as the virus that causes SARS, which killed more than 700 people in the early 2000s. With no vaccine yet available, effective hygiene and cleaning practices are a front line of defense.

In the United States, the Center for Disease Control is monitoring the situation closely. If you think you have been in contact with the virus, you can get more information here. ◊
