Hello doc, will the corona virus die by insecticide / mosquito spray such as H * t or B * ygon?

1 Answer:

Hello Lila,

Thank you for the question.

There are many insecticides on the market with different active ingredients. Frequently, this insecticide drug is made with the active ingredient DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide), pyridine, lemon eucalyptus oil, pitertrin, as well as carbamate and organophosphate. These various active substances can kill insects through their ability to inhibit the work of enzymes in the body of the insect so that its nerve function is disrupted.

So far, not many studies have mentioned that the use of active substances in anti-insect drugs above can kill viruses, including the new Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) that is spreading lately. In fact, the above ingredients are reported to be harmful to health because they can trigger skin irritation, neurological disorders, respiratory disorders, digestive disorders, allergies, and even loss of consciousness. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to limit the use of this insect repellent, except when in urgent conditions.

The new Corona virus, like most viruses, can be defeated with good endurance. In addition, limiting traveling to public places is accompanied by good personal hygiene, such as bathing regularly, diligently washing hands, not exchanging personal belongings with other people, and not also haphazardly holding a face, can also inhibit the entry of this virus into the body.

Hope this helps ...
