Latest Updates and News on Corona Virus

2020-04-18 Coronavirus Update

A. Indian Government Advisory against the spraying of disinfectant on people for COVID-19 management

  • Spraying of individuals or groups is NOT recommended under any circumstances. Spraying an individual or group with chemical disinfectants is physically and psychologically harmful.
  • Even if a person is potentially exposed to the COVID-19 virus, spraying the external part of the body does not kill the virus that has entered your body. Also, there is no scientific evidence to suggest that they are effective even in disinfecting the outer clothing/body in an effective manner.
  • Spraying of chlorine on individuals can lead to irritation of eyes and skin and potentially gastrointestinal effects such as nausea and vomiting. Inhalation of sodium hypochlorite can lead to irritation of mucous membranes to the nose, throat, respiratory tract and may also cause bronchospasm.
  • Additionally, use of such measures may, in fact, lead to a false sense of disinfection & safety and actually hamper public observance to hand washing and social distancing measures.
