Now we are facing the covid-19 outbreak and one of the prevention is spraying disinfectant on the environment and on humans. The one containing the disinfectant is benzalkonium chloride. What I want to ask is the right and safe dosage when sprayed on humans.

1 Answer:

Hello Echoera,


Thank you for the question.

There are many types of disinfectants and their contents. This disinfectant is useful, in addition to maintaining cleanliness, also to eradicate a variety of harmful microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, and so on.


The most need to be sprayed disinfectant is inanimate objects, such as door handles, tables, chairs, windows, and so on. There is no need to actually spray disinfectant on humans. In fact, if this disinfectant is inhaled or ingested in large quantities into the human body, the impact can be bad for health. Direct contact between disinfectants and the surface of the skin and human mucosa can also cause various symptoms of irritation and allergies.


Maybe you are confused because you have seen people with complete clothes sprayed with disinfectants, such as migrant workers who have just returned from abroad. The main purpose of spraying this disinfectant is actually to avoid the attachment of dirt and harmful microorganisms from inanimate objects attached to it, namely clothes, bags and other luggage.


As for cleaning up impurities and harmful microorganisms from the body, the right step that needs to be done is to take regular baths and wash your hands using soap and running water. In an emergency, you can also use a hand sanitizer to keep your hands clean and avoid disease-causing microorganisms.


Hope this helps ...
