What is a Coronavirus (COVID-19 or SARS COV-2)?

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Our Treatment Process

virus disinfection

We use professional products to prevent rodent and bird viruses is also effective against coronaviruses.

Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome. The PX-formulations have been tested against Adenovirus and Murine norovirus in accordance with EN14476, the European standard for demonstrating virucidal activity of a disinfectant, against the enveloped Vaccinia virus.

According to EN14476:2013 + A2:2019, testing the efficacy of a disinfectant against Adenovirus and Murine norovirus [1] allows the product to claim efficacy against enveloped viruses  including Coronavirus, Influenza virus, Hepatitis B and C and Human Immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Our service is carried out using an Ultra-low volume machine which produces tiny droplets. These droplets will penetrate cracks and crevices and cover all areas. The area can be entered once the disinfectant treatment has dried after 2 hours.

Because the ULV uses micro droplets we should also be able to use in areas where there are computers or electrical equipment (switched off). One thing to note is that we do have to cover or switch off the fire alarms while this work is going on.
