Hello Yanto, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Benzalkonium Chloride is a liquid that has an antiseptic / disinfectant class. Currently in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak there is a scarcity of various materials such as masks, liquid disinfectants, etc. Responding to your question according to the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), there are several materials that can be used as disinfectants which are attached in this link. One of them is Benzalkonium Chloride 1%, with the recommended dilution of 50 mL in 1 L of water.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
