The Gojo company who successfully working with our company announced what are the most common areas of workspace that need to be disinfected more then often.
Because so much disease is transmitted by touch, it is important to clean objects and surfaces that employees often encounter. Office disinfection, such as door handles, elevator keys, handrails, etc., as well as encouraging employees to disinfect items in their immediate workspace, such as a desk, computer and keyboard, can interrupt the infection cycle. Disinfection of these surfaces and objects helps to eliminate the number of germs.
PURELL® surface disinfectants have shown efficacy against human Coronavirus strain on hard, non-porous surfaces when used in accordance with the instructions for use and one-minute contact time on hard, non-porous surfaces.

Ecolab, a strategic partner of Surfmont and whose products we also distribute throughout Montenegro, has issued the following press release.

Public health officials have identified a new coronavirus, 2019 n-CoV or the Wuhan coronavirus, after the city in China’s Hubei province where it was first discovered. The virus causes fever and respiratory symptoms, and as of Jan. 28, has infected nearly 4,500 people, with more than 100 reported deaths to date.

The origin of this virus has not yet been confirmed, but it may spread from an infected person to others through coughing or sneezing or very close personal contact, or by touching an object or surface with the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.

The largest number of cases have been reported in China, but cases have been confirmed in many countries throughout the world in people who have previously visited China.

What is a coronavirus?

A coronavirus is a type of ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus with an envelope, which mainly cause symptoms of respiratory and intestinal diseases. There are many regularly arranged protrusions on the surface of this type of virus particle, and the entire virus particle is like an emperor’s crown, hence the name “coronavirus.”

At the moment, there are six known human coronaviruses. Four of these coronaviruses are less pathogenic, generally causing only minor respiratory symptoms similar to the common cold. Two other coronaviruses—Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS CoV) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS CoV) —can cause serious respiratory diseases.

The new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is different from these six known coronaviruses and requires further scientific research.

How is a coronavirus transmitted?

Transmission depends on the particular coronavirus. Human coronaviruses may spread from an infected person to others through:

The air by coughing and sneezing
Close personal contact, such as touching or shaking hands
Touching an object or surface with the virus on it, then touching your mouth, nose, or eyes before washing your hands
Person-to-person transmission is occurring to some extent with 2019-nCoV.

How can you reduce the risk of coronavirus infection?

There are currently no vaccines available to protect against human coronavirus infection, but you may be able to reduce your risk of infection through the following:

Wash your hands often and correctly
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact with people who are sick
Do not touch animals or animal feces and do not eat wild animals
Avoid farmers markets, live poultry markets or farms
If you have fever or other symptoms after traveling home, you should wear a mask and call your doctor.
