According to NEA, many general household products contain the appropriate concentrations of active ingredients (A.I.) that are known to inactivate coronaviruses. For general precautionary cleaning, detergent and water are adequate. For disinfection of areas that are very likely to be contaminated with 2019-nCoV (e.g. bedroom of a person confirmed to have a 2019-CoV infection), disinfectant/cleaning products listed in Table 1 can be used. The product list is based on currently available data and active ingredients known to be effective against coronaviruses (Table 2). Both tables will be updated as data from more products are gathered, and as more products are assessed to be appropriate.
Important points to note:
1. Check the labels and use according to instruction, and be aware of the potential
hazard of each product.
2. For disinfection of highly contaminated surfaces or material, avoid the use of spray, and allow appropriate time needed for disinfection (refer to product instruction).
3. This product list should be read in conjunction with the Guidelines and Advisories issued by NEA with instruction and guidelines on how to conduct proper cleaning and disinfection of premises.
Any company marketing disinfectants that are effective against coronaviruses can contact NEA at 1800-CALL NEA (1800-2255 632) or submit your enquiries electronically via the Online Feedback Form or myENV mobile application.
