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.
Now approved for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19
All SHYIELD products are approved for use under Health Canada’s Broad-Spectrum Virucide claim to protect you in any emerging viral pathogen outbreak, including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
