Safe Material For Disinfecting Chamber For Corona Prevention
Doc wants to ask, is the desinfectant chamber sprayed on the human body effective in killing the corona virus? and what materials are safe and recommended for the desinfectant chamber? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The presence of chambers or disinfection chambers lately has become easier to find. Disinfection spray booths for the entire body WHO Indonesia said this should not be done. Spraying disinfectant chemicals directly into the human body can be dangerous if exposed to clothing and mucous membranes such as eyes and mouth. Ingredients such as alcohol and chlorine, according to WHO can be useful as a disinfectant for the surface of inanimate objects. It also must be in accordance with the instructions for use.
Experts from the School of Pharmacy reinforce this opinion by saying there is no scientific data showing how effectively the disinfectant booth can kill the virus. The use of certain chemicals as disinfectants also has health risks. Inhalation of chlorine gas (Cl2) and chlorine dioxide (ClO2) can cause severe irritation of the respiratory tract.
Some chemicals that are often used as disinfectants in spray booths include:
Hypochlorite solution: Risk of triggering and damage to the skin on long-term exposure. Inhalation can cause mild irritation to breathing. Electrolyzed Salt Water: Risk of triggering irritation. Chloroxylenol (active ingredient of commercial antiseptic fluid): Risk of triggering skin and eye irritation, risk of poisoning if swallowed. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2): at certain levels can trigger skin irritation. The safest way to avoid a corona -OVID-19 virus infection so far is to keep each other apart (phisycal distancing) and wash your hands frequently with soap for 20-30 seconds. Soap or detergent is scientifically effective in damaging the corona virus envelope. Even if it has to pass through a disinfecting chamber or chamber, be sure to know very well the types of chemicals used and their concentration. And don't be surprised if sometimes the officers who operate the cubicles also don't know what type of disinfectant they are using. but if the cubicles carried out by the government are usually already assured of safety and in accordance with the measurements. the benzalkonium chloride material contained in the disinfectant is included in the ammonium quartener class, and it is safe for humans because of its low level.
Thus the info I can give
hopefully can help you
