Which products have proven action against the coronavirus / COVID-19?
COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2, an encapsulated virus that belongs to the Coronaviridae family. Coronaviruses get their name due to their shape. After all, when scientists look at the virus particles under an electron microscope, they appear to be surrounded by a “crown” (corona in Latin). Within a couple of months, this virus sparked a pandemic.
SARS-CoV-2 affects, among other things, the airways. A healthy person can become infected when their own mucous membranes are exposed to infectious droplets produced by a person infected with SARS-CoV-2 when coughing or sneezing. Contraction of the novel coronavirus can also occur after contact with contaminated surfaces or objects, followed by touching the nose, eyes or mouth. Systematically disinfecting frequently used living and working spaces will prevent viral transmission, a crucial step in controlling an outbreak and stopping the infectious threat.
Only a few weeks after the pandemic started, research and development was intensified at Roam Technology, focusing on the efficacy of our products on coronaviruses, in order to offer more tools to combat the virus. The table below lists the products that are effective against enveloped viruses and therefor the coronavirus. The Roam Alco-gel is only available upon request.
