The recent pandemic, COVID-19 has caused a panic buying of sanitizers, soaps and various surface cleaners. But the big question is - Can hand sanitizers help protect you from infections? Well, the answer is yes. Hand sanitizers can help in protecting you by preventing the spread of both virus and bacteria. However, preventing coronavirus infection lies in the constituents of the sanitizer and the method of use. If used correctly and in the right scenarios, it can help kill the germs.
Ideal hand sanitizer for preventing the spread of coronavirus
The World Health Organization has recommended using a hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol. You should use the label-instructed amount, rub it in and let it dry out.
How does hand sanitizer work on coronavirus?
Using hand sanitizer prevents the hand transmission of germs. It is also effective against the novel coronavirus which is an enveloped virus. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are effective in removing these enveloped viruses by inactivating the envelope, thus making it non-infectious.
Are hand sanitizers as effective as soap?
The best way to kill germs is washing your hands with soap and water. However, you can’t have access to soap and water all the time, especially when you are on the go. At these times, use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer is recommended. It is imperative to use a hand sanitizer that has over 60% alcohol. Indus Hand Sanitizer is made with WHO recommended formula and contains 80% alcohol (ethanol). It kills 99.9% germs and gives continued protection.
Hand sanitizer can also be used at home and office. If you are sick yourself, you should always use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when sneezing/coughing. Clean your hands with Indus Hand Sanitizer to avoid hand transmission of germs.
