Hand sanitisers

Prefer washing your hands!

The first choice in removing the virus from your hands should always be washing your hands with soap and warm water. See how to wash your hands properly (PDF).
After washing, dry your hands carefully.

As there are various different sanitisers available, always carefully follow the information on the product labelling and any separate instructions sheet. The label and instructions include information about the product’s active ingredients, as well as the effect the product may have against viruses. The label on a sanitation product which is compliant with the requirements also includes the number for a registration certificate which has been issued by the Health Board.

 

Sanitisers for premises and surfaces

Based on studies regarding the environmental stability of coronaviruses, the virus may last up to three days under normal conditions. On the other hand, it is easily removable from surfaces by using efficient cleaning methods and detergents.

In order to kill the virus, contaminated surfaces must first be cleaned with a detergent (such as soap) and water or wiped down and only then sanitised.

As there are various forms of sanitiser available, always carefully follow the information on the product labelling and any separate instructions sheet. The label and instructions include information about the product’s active ingredients, as well as the effect of the product against viruses. The label on a sanitation product which is compliant with the requirements also includes the number for a registration certificate which has been issued by the Health Board.

 

Please check the sanitiser you are using!

A sanitiser which has not been registered or inspected may not actually have the required disinfection properties and may therefore not offer any protection to the user. These products create a false sense of security and thereby even facilitate the spread of viruses and bacteria, instead of curbing it.
