People in many countries are contracting monkeypox, even though they have not travelled to any regions where the virus is mainly circulating. The World Health Organisation (WHO) therefore classifies monkeypox as a public health emergency of international concern. A research team from the virology departments of Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, and the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany, has investigated whether the virus can be inactivated by two disinfectants recommended by the WHO. They found that both disinfectants efficiently inactivate the virus during a 30 second application. The researchers published their findings in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases of 17. November 2022.The two Disinfectants are Ethanol and ISO propyl Alcohol based Hand rubs.We at Devika Hycare Products have been manufacturers of these Disinfectants and many other cleaning #stayHealthyStaySafe #hygiene #hygieneproducts #homehygiene
