Vappro Corrosion Control Australia is pleased to present a paper, published by Dr. Nelson Cheng, from our partner, Magna International Pte Ltd, on inactivation of Enveloped Viruses with Legionella-X Range of Disinfectants. In November 2002 the Severe acute respiratory syndrome induced by coronavirus (SARS-CoV) was first identified in China. It caused a global outbreak with 8,098 probable cases including 774 deaths. World Health Organization (WHO) reviewed the comprehensive protocol for cleaning and disinfection of hospitals and other settings after the occupation of people with Severe acute respiratory syndrome. In view of the above, the Legionella-X range of disinfectants was developed to combat the Enveloped Viruses such as Coronavirus and Influenza Viruses. Legionella-X disinfectant contains synergistic chemical composition to inactivate enveloped viruses by denaturation of the protein of Coronaviruses and Influenza Viruses (H5N1). This article covers the synergistic chemical used and the mechanism involved inactivating these viruses. Complete formulation with blending procedures and the inactivating efficacy of an Enveloped Virus using H5N1 are also furnished in this article.
