A recent report confirms that Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist have received approval from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as these 2 Lysol products work efficiently against killing the viruses causing coronavirus on surfaces. According to the agency, both the Lysol products can kill the virus on surfaces within 2 minutes of application.

In a statement, Lysol producer, executive vice president of hygiene, Rahul Kadyan, said that the EPA's approval recognizes that using Lysol Disinfectant Spray could aid in preventing the spread of coronavirus on non-porous and hard surfaces. In the times of the pandemic, Lysol continues to work with a vast range of scientific and health experts to educate the public over the vitality of hygiene.

In March, when the pandemic was at its height, Lysol cleaners were more in demand than water as Americans started storing hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

The recent news release stated that the EPA mentioned that it would approve more disinfectants in the coming weeks. Among more than 420 cleaning agents, Lysol products are on top of the list, and it is said that Lysol is effective against killing the toughest viruses on surfaces. And those products meet the agency's criteria for potency against SARS-CoV-2.

In April, President Donald Trump detected some major points and suggested that injecting disinfectants into an individual's body could be a key to cure coronavirus.

In the daily briefing of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, Trump stated that he has witnessed that the disinfectant knocks out the viruses in one minute and if there any way that all can do something similar by injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because as all know, it enters the lungs and does a tremendous number on the lungs, so scientists must check that, and it sounds interesting to him.

Over Trump's remark, Lysol's parent company, Reckitt Benckiser, quickly responded that its product should not be internally used or injected into the body to treat the potentially deadly virus.

Reckitt Benckiser stated that as a leading product in health and hygiene, the brand clears that under no circumstance does its disinfectant products be consumed into the human body (through ingestion, injection, or any other route). Like other disinfectants and hygiene products, its products should only be applied as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Before using its product, it is recommended to read the label and safety information.

For the time being, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had earlier confirmed that an individual could get COVID-19 by touching an object or surface that has the virus on it, then touching their own nose, mouth, or possibly their eyes. However, the most essential and primary mode of COVID-19 transmission is through close contact from person-to-person.
