Good morning I Theresya from West Jakarta wants to ask 1. why is Ethanol (C2H5OH) so effective in preventing viruses? 2. Besides ethanol, what else can protect you from viruses?

1 Answer:

Hi Theresya

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com

Ethanol is an effective form of alcohol to kill bacteria and viruses, used as an antiseptic or disinfectant. Ethanol can kill a number of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, or fungi by destroying cell walls or membrane microorganisms, also said ethanol can kill microorganisms by splitting cells into several parts and disrupting cell metabolism. But of course it is influenced by the levels in a solution

Besides ethanol, some substances can function to inactivate the virus through disinfection such as chlorine, ether, periosiacetic acid, formalin, and so on.

In hand sanitizers other than ethanol, the use of isipropyl alcohol and benzalkonium chloride also effectively kills microorganisms.

For now, using hand sanitizers is certainly not enough power. Increase endurance by consuming healthy and nutritious food, getting enough rest and drinking, regular exercise, and avoiding cigarettes and alcohol really help protect the body from infections of microorganisms including viruses.

That's all, hopefully help
