Ebola - Vital Oxide

Ebola

According to the CDC Interim Guidance for Environmental Infection Control in Hospitals for Ebola Virus date August 1, 2014, Vital Oxide would fall under the suggested use disinfectant for non-enveloped virus as Vital Oxide Currently carries claims for norovirus and rotavirus as mention is the Interim Guidance copied below. Use a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered hospital disinfectant with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) to disinfect environmental surfaces in rooms of patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection. Although there are no products with specific label claims against the Ebola virus, enveloped viruses such as Ebola are susceptible to a broad range of hospital disinfectants used to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces. In contrast, non- enveloped viruses are more resistant to disinfectants. As a precaution, selection of a disinfectant product with a higher potency than what is normally required for an enveloped virus is being recommended at this time. EPA-registered hospital disinfectants with label claims against non-enveloped viruses (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) are broadly antiviral and capable of inactivating both enveloped and non- enveloped viruses.
