Infection control instructions call for use of alcohol-based hand rub solutions to inactivate severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. We determined the virucidal activity of World Health Organization–recommended hand rub formulations, at full strength and multiple dilutions, and of the active ingredients. All disinfectants demonstrated efficient virus inactivation. 
Antiviral efficacy of personal care formulations against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2
TLDR
Recommendations that proper hand hygiene can reduce SARS-CoV-2 viral load significantly which should likely limit spread of the contagion are re-affirmed. Expand
Alcohol-based hand sanitisers as first line of defence against SARS-CoV-2: a review of biology, chemistry and formulations
TLDR
This review summarises the studies on alcohol-based hand sanitisers and their disinfectant activity against SARS-CoV-2 and related viruses and shows that the type and concentration of alcohol, formulation and nature of product, presence of excipients, applied volume, contact time and viral contamination load are critical factors that determine the effectiveness of handsanitisers.

Virucidal Efficacy of Different Oral Rinses Against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2
TLDR
Several formulations with significant Sars-CoV-2 inactivating properties in vitro support the idea that oral rinsing might reduce the viral load of saliva and could thus lower the transmission of SARS-Cov-2. Expand
Inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 by commercially available alcohol-based hand sanitizers
TLDR
This study demonstrates a commercially available foam and gel alcohol-based hand sanitizer are effective in inactivating SARS-CoV-2 in suspension. Expand
Excessive use of disinfectants against COVID-19 posing a potential threat to living beings
TLDR
Precautionary measures should be ensured to protect the community from the possible risk associated with disinfectants against COVID-19, and children are considered more prone to alcohol poisoning and other major health concern. Expand
Consequences of chemical impact of disinfectants: safe preventive measures against COVID-19
TLDR
This review discusses about the potential harmful effect of disinfectants, if used inappropriately, and safe preventive options as an alternative to robust use of disinfection methods to fight against COVID-19. Expand
Review of the use of nasal and oral antiseptics during a global pandemic
A review of nasal sprays and gargles with antiviral properties suggests that a number of commonly used antiseptics including povidone-iodine, Listerine®, iota-carrageenan and chlorhexidine should beExpand
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 Inactivation Activity of the Polyphenol-Rich Tea Leaf Extract with Concentrated Theaflavins and Other Virucidal Catechins
Since severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is producing a large number of infections and deaths globally, the development of supportive and auxiliary treatments is attractingExpand

TLDR
In the case of SARS-CoV-2, disinfectants with proven activity against vaccinia virus, the marker virus for the European claim 'active against enveloped viruses', should be used to ensure effective hygiene procedures to control the pandemic. Expand
Viricidal treatments for prevention of coronavirus infection
TLDR
Some commonly used viricidal agents in healthcare settings and the role they can play in the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 transmission are compiled and critically appraised. Expand

Virucidal Activity of World Health Organization–Recommended Formulations Against Enveloped Viruses, Including Zika, Ebola, and Emerging Coronaviruses
TLDR
Evaluated the virucidal activity of these WHO products in a comparative analysis, finding that Zika virus, Ebola virus, EBOV, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, and SARS-CoV as (re-)emerging viral pathogens and other enveloped viruses could be efficiently inactivated by both WHO formulations. Expand
Virucidal Activity of World Health Organization–Recommended Formulations Against Enveloped Viruses, Including Zika, Ebola, and Emerging Coronaviruses
The World Health Organization (WHO) published 2 alcohol-based formulations to be used in healthcare settings and for outbreak-associated infections, but inactivation efficacies of these products haveExpand
Isolation of a novel coronavirus from a man with pneumonia in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
The clinical picture was remarkably similar to that of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003 and reminds us that animal coronaviruses can cause severe disease in humans. Expand
Persistence of coronaviruses on inanimate surfaces and their inactivation with biocidal agents
TLDR
Human coronaviruses can persist on inanimate surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to 9 days, but can be efficiently inactivated by surface disinfection procedures with 62–71% ethanol, 0.5% hydrogen peroxide or 0.1% sodium hypochlorite within 1 minute. Expand
Identification of a novel coronavirus in patients with severe acute respiratory syndrome.
TLDR
The novel coronavirus might have a role in causing SARS and was detected in a variety of clinical specimens from patients with SARS but not in controls. Expand
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19): The epidemic and the challenges
TLDR
Among patients with pneumonia caused by SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus pneumonia or Wuhan pneumonia), fever was the most common symptom, followed by cough, and bilateral lung involvement with ground-glass opacity was themost common finding from computed tomography images of the chest. Expand
Testing of the World Health Organization-recommended formulations for surgical hand preparation and proposals for increased efficacy.
TLDR
The original formulations do not meet the efficacy requirements of EN 12791, and an amendment to the formulations is possible by increasing the alcohol concentrations through changing volume into mass percent and prolonging the duration of application from 3 min to 5 min. Expand
Modified World Health Organization Hand Rub Formulations Comply with European Efficacy Requirements for Preoperative Surgical Hand Preparations
TLDR
Both WHO-recommended formulations meet the efficacy requirements of EN 12791 by increasing their alcohol concentrations by 5%, prolonging their application to 5 minutes and reducing the glycerol concentration to 0.725%. Expand
Cell Culture
TLDR
Cell and molecular mechanisms used by predators at the beach to track us down and take a bite are explored, to facilitate the development of the perfect cocktail for repelling mosquitoes and combating the spread of malaria. Expand
