EPA approves 1st disinfectant that kills COVID-19


The EPA has given its 1st approval of disinfectants that kill coronavirus: Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist

(CNN) — They flew off the shelves when the pandemic first hit.

Now they’re official.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has given its first approval to disinfectants that kill coronavirus.

Two Lysol products are federally approved as effective against coronavirus.

They are Lysol disinfectant spray and Lysol disinfectant max cover mist.

The approval is based on lab testing that found when used on hard, non-porous surfaces, both products kill the virus two minutes after contact.

Lysol says it’s currently working on testing other disinfectant products against coronavirus.

Back in April, a musing by President Trump if people could disinfect from the inside during a coronavirus briefing prompted Lysol to issue a statement warning people not to inject or ingest disinfectant products.
