Help your customers in the fight against coronavirus




There are now more than 20,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in China, and over 150 in 23 other countries – as of 4 February 2020.  

Matt Hancock, the British Health Secretary, has stated that the number of new cases is doubling every five days, and will be an ongoing concern for months. In the UK there are currently two confirmed cases of coronavirus, both Chinese nationals who are being treated in Newcastle, and 94 repatriated British nationals are in quarantine in the Wirral, to see if they develop symptoms. 

 

There are currently no vaccines or a cure for coronavirus, and antibiotics will not work. Recovery depends on initial health – how strong the sufferer’s immune system is to begin with. With 425 deaths so far – and rising – the concern about protection from coronavirus is something that all businesses need to be aware of.

High demand for cleaning products

Our products are currently selling fast – everything that can be used to protect workplaces, staff and customers from coronavirus is flying off the shelves. From gloves and face masks, to environmental decontamination products and biocidal sanitisers, we have seen a rise in sales, and we are aware that the situation is very fluid.  

Our products can help to protect against many viruses, but there are more ways that you can help your customers deal with any outbreak.

Measures to stay safe

Although testing on this particular virus is still being completed, we know that similar viruses are spread through coughing and sneezing, so it is appropriate to use similar protection measures when dealing with coronavirus.  

  • Hand washing Effective hand washing is the best first line of defence against coronavirus. Follow a proper, thorough hand washing routine.

  • Avoid touching surfaces that could have been affected Although it is not possible to determine how long the coronavirus survives on surfaces (anything from hours to months), it is good practice to use a biocidal cleaner like our Broad Spectrum Sanitizer, which is non-fragranced and food-safe.   

  • Stay at least six feet away from an infected person who coughs or sneezes This is standard hospital guidelines for the prevention of flu spreading – and as this virus seems to be similar in behaviour, it is a good idea to treat it the same. If you want added protection from breathing in droplets, then face masks are a good option. 

 

Millions of masks and counting

China is running out of face masks, suits and goggles; they can produce, at full capacity, 20 million masks a day. But with the current situation where several provinces in China have made it compulsory to wear masks in public, a combined population of 300 million are in need. Panic buying and the phased return of workers after the Lunar New Year has meant that they are only working at 60-70% capacity.

There are currently no recommendations about compulsory mask wearing outside of China. Yet as new cases are reported every day and the recommendations by the World Health Organisation change, keeping abreast of the developments will ensure you don’t run out of protective products.

 

Make sure your customers have access to face masks, goggles and latex gloves, as well as efficient, lab-tested cleaning supplies, by getting your Cleenol products in stock quickly.
