Newsmax

Newsmax | Thousands of pathogens are detrimental to human health, they mutate, and vaccines can only go so far in protecting us. Disinfectants are one of our greatest weapons in the fight against COVID and other infectious diseases, yet they have been misused for decades and COVID has unfortunately not changed this reality. Long before COVID-19 hit, Mark White, a friend and former governor of Texas, was aware of the senseless deaths caused by improper disinfection. What Gov. White understood, and what needs to be impressed upon us all, is that old-school disinfectants have multiple disadvantages. The global pandemic has highlighted just how impractical, inefficient and often harmful to human and environmental health they are... CONTINUE TO FULL ARTICLE

Studies conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) confirm that over 70% of new infections occur in those who are diligent about wearing masks. So where are we falling short? Disinfection. After lingering in the air, COVID lands on surfaces and survives for relatively long periods of time. We touch these surfaces. We place personal items such as face masks and cell phones on these surfaces. One of our greatest weapons in the fight against COVID and other infectious diseases are disinfectants, and they are being used at a ferocious rate in facilities and homes. However, their efficacy and safety hinges on proper use.... CONTINUE TO ARTICLE
