There is a high level of confusion about which sanitising products are effective against the Coronavirus. Using any sanitiser is a good thing, but many are no more effective than a thorough hand wash with hot water and soap.
For example antibacterial sanitisers are only effective against bacteria, not viruses. Antimicrobial sanitisers however act against a range of micro-organisms including bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Alcohol is one of the lesser effective chemistries and has to be used in concentrations of at least 70% in order to be effective. Many alcohol sanitisers contain far lower concentrations than this.
The antimicrobial effectiveness of Clinisept+ has been vigorously and independently tested, proving it to exceed the recognised levels of performance required of this type of product.
Clinisept+ can be sprayed liberally directly onto the hands, face and surfaces to provide rapid protection against contamination.
Clinisept+ contains a proprietary ultra-pure hypochlorous solution which enables it to provide effective cleansing at a fraction of the strength of traditional cleansing chemistries.
Clinisept+’s hypochlorous has a unique oxidising method of action which cleanses and provides antimicrobial protection but is also completely skin safe. It doesn’t harm, irritate or sensitise the dermal layer. And because of the product’s oxidising method of action, organisms cannot become immune to it, meaning it is not subject to anti microbial resistance.
The chemistry has undergone extensive independent testing proving not only its extreme effectiveness, but also the fact that it has a skin neutral pH, is hypoallergenic and is even non-cytotoxic. (Not toxic to cells.)
Clinisept+ truly is the holy grail of skin cleansing. The reason Covid-19 is so serious is that the virus is both resilient (there is no vaccine) and also virulent, which is why it has spread so quickly around the world.
The speed with which a virus spreads is measured by its ‘reproductive number’, or R, which in layman’s terms, is the number of people that one individual with the virus will infect. If the number is greater than one, then the infection is spreading. If it is less than one, then it is in decline.
Recent estimates have put the R index at 2.5, however it has reached well over 3 in China and Italy. This means that every person that has Covid-19 transmits it to two or three others.
Covid-19 is therefore growing exponentially and is not going away anytime soon.
To beat coronavirus, we have to get the R number down, to below 1.0. So how can we achieve this? There are four key aspects that influence the R: the duration that someone who has the virus is infectious for, the number of people an infected person comes into contact with whilst they are contagious,
whether the contact is sufficient for transfer of the virus to take place, and the susceptibility of the people who become exposed to it.
Because we don’t have any medicines or vaccines that are effective against Covid-19, we can’t do anything about the length of time someone is infectious and neither can we change how susceptible we each are to the virus, and as we know the elderly or those with respiratory conditions are far more susceptible.
However, we clearly can influence how much contact we have with other people and therefore how much we expose ourselves to the danger of becoming infected.
Put simply, if you don’t come into close contact with someone who has the virus and you don’t touch a surface that has been contaminated with it, you will not become infected.
Completely avoiding contact with other people and the surfaces they have touched is almost impossible, so frequent hand washing and sanitising with an effective chemistry is essential. Evidence of Clinisept+’s effectiveness has been presented to HSE and the Government and a submission has been made for fast-track approval as a skin disinfectant for use during the current pandemic.
