Coronavirus Support Material
5 March 2020
DISCLAIMER: Evans Vanodine has become aware of profiteering by businesses and individuals reselling our products, in particular, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. Handsan, Evans 70% alcohol hand sanitiser, is being resold on websites such as Ebay and refilled into pack sizes which our business does not manufacture. Please be vigilant when purchasing Evans products and do so through a registered distributor, not general retail websites where the goods may be fakes and packaged unsuitably. Action will be taken against any resellers who persist in misusing and misrepresenting the Evans Vanodine brand, and potentially endangering our customers.
** PLEASE BE ADVISED, IF A PRODUCT IS NOT NAMED IN OUR GUIDELINES, WE WOULD NOT CURRENTLY RECOMMEND IT AGAINST CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) **
Since the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, we have been asked for guidance on cleaning and disinfecting, as well as best hygiene practices.
Our Coronavirus Guidelines summarise Public Health England’s (PHE), and our, advice on infection prevention and control. It pays attention to surface disinfection and hand hygiene.
We have also published an article, highlighting some frequently asked questions, following a webinar attended by our chief microbiologist. https://www.evansvanodine.co.uk/issa-and-global-biorisk-advisory-council-gbac-webinar
Below, we have brought together all our support material that we feel will be useful, relating to the products and procedures discussed:
As per PHE advice, cleaning with a neutral detergent should be followed by disinfection with a chlorine based product, in the form of a solution at a minimum strength of 1,000pm available chlorine.
|Chlorine Based Disinfectant||To achieve 1,000ppm|
|Chlor Tabs||1 tablet per 1 L water|
|Chlor Liquid||20ml per 1 L water|
|Cyclone||20ml per 1 L water|
|Cyclone Spray||Ready to use formulation|
Apply made up solution to surfaces with a clean cloth. Leave to air dry.
If a chlorine based disinfectant is not suitable for a particular application, Safe Zone Plus, a ready to use virucidal disinfectant, may be used.
Please be advised, if a product you are using is not listed, we would not currently recommend it against Coronavirus (COVID-19).
