A recent paper published by the US CDC & FDA claims that COVID-19 can survive on various surfaces for days.
Interrupting indirect transmission can only be achieved by eliminating the virus once it has left its previous host and is invisibly lying in wait on contaminated surfaces ready to infect further victims with this deadly disease. Left unchecked, the Coronavirus has been shown to remain invisibly and dangerously infectious on any surface, hard or soft, for days. Thereby allowing it to infect many more potential victims of the disease.
BR Shield™ is a revolutionary disinfectant spray that uses bonded anti-microbial technology. When applied to surfaces, it forms an odourless and invisible positively charged polymer that attracts, electrocutes and ruptures, a microbe’s negatively charged cell membrane.
Conventional chemical disinfectants can, to a certain extent, kill and reduce the number of pathogens present, however once the solution dries, any new pathogens reintroduced can survive and proliferate quickly, returning to unsafe levels.
BRShield™ provides treated surfaces with both immediate disinfection and long-term antimicrobial protection. This will inactivate viruses as well as kill and inhibit the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria and mould that can survive and multiply on untreated surfaces.
