Respiratory illness spreads via airborne droplets from coughing, sneezing and hand contact
Bournemouth – 30th January 2020– Milton, the leading expert in sterilising today revealed their guidelines to beating the Coronavirus outbreak. Milton has been trusted by hospitals for over 70 years and is the go to brand for sterilising baby products.
The Coronavirus started in Wuhan, China and causes a serious respiratory illness that has already resulted in over 130 deaths to date. The most effective approach to protecting yourself and family is through systematic hand hygiene and through cleaning of surfaces.
Milton’s 2 stage approach designed to stop the Coronavirus transmission:
Step 1 – Wash your hands often and well throughout the day and always before eating.
Hand hygiene is one of the most important measures to prevent and control the disease from spreading. Milton’s Antibacterial Hand Gel is plant based and kills Coronavirus, Flu virus, Norovirus and Rotavirus. The gel is effective on bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi and viruses from 30 seconds. To be effective on the new strand of Coronavirus, hands must be rubbed constantly inside out and between fingers for a minimum of 30 seconds. It is 100% plant based, the active ingredient is produced from beetroot, certified to be GMO free.
The Hand Gel is fragrance and colour free, reducing the risk of an allergic skin reaction. It is hypoallergenic and tested dermatologically making it ideal for multiple daily use on both big and little hands. The 100 ml pack is ideal for on-the -go hand cleaning, designed to fit neatly into the parents or children’s bags, with an RRP of £2.26.
Step 2- Keep surfaces clean and germ free.
Use either the Milton Sterilising Fluid or the Milton Sterilising Tablets to create a home cleaning solution that is effective on the Coronavirus. Clinically proven to kill 99.9% of germs (bacteria, fungi and viruses), your home will be protected from harmful germs. Both products are easy to use and made up with regular tap water.
To fight against the Coronavirus, more concentrated dilutions must be used based on the WHO (World Health Organisation) latest guidelines:
Mix 1.5 cap (45mL) of fluid with 1.5 litre of cold water and to make the solution from tablets, place one tablet in 1 litre of cold water. This solution leaves surfaces germ free after a minimum of 10 minutes. RRP: £2.46. Stockists listed below
