Disinfectants for use against Coronavirus

Michelle Mak COVID-19, Newcomer Information

Health Canada is working with disinfectant manufacturers and industry associations to better inform Canadians of the products available for use to help against the spread of infections during the COVID-19 outbreak. They have put together a list of disinfectants that meet Health Canada’s requirements.

Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses. This means they are one of the easiest types of viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product when used according to the label directions.
