Disinfectants and the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

Also known as Wuhan Coronavirus

From the CDC:
Situation Summary:
The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new virus that causes respiratory illness in people and can spread from person-to-person. This virus was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. There is currently no vaccine to prevent 2019-nCoV infection. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus.


The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and Human Coronavirus are both strains of Coronavirus. The disinfectants listed below have demonstrated efficacy against Human Coronavirus; when used according to label directions. However, until samples are available for validated testing and efficacy has been approved by the EPA a specific label claim for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) cannot be made.

Recommended Preventative Actions:
The CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

These are everyday habits that can help prevent the spread of several viruses. CDC does have specific guidance for travelers.
