In cases of emerging viral pathogens like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, Health Canada utilizes the Broad Spectrum Virucide claim to determine the expected efficacy of a disinfectant against an emerging virus. This guidance was used during the 2003 SARS epidemic and mandates that for disinfectant products to be approved, they must have proven efficacy against one of the following four non-enveloped viruses – Adenovirus type 5, Bovine Parvovirus, Canine Parvovirus, and Poliovirus type 1.
As industry leaders in infection prevention, our mission is to ensure that our customers are protected against the threat of emerging disease outbreaks in all of the markets we serve. SHYIELD™, formulated with Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide®, is approved for use against some of the world’s most dangerous pathogens under Health Canada’s emerging viral pathogen guidance, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In choosing SHYIELD™ as your daily disinfectant, we want to ensure you have the confidence that your clients and team are covered in the event of an outbreak as well as for everyday use.
