Novel coronavirus 2019 and GermXit

Updates from World Health Organization here:

We are not saying GermXit® can cure or provide 100% protection from coronaviruses.

What we are saying is that:

has been proven effective against
Influenza Virus A strain NWS/G70C (H11N9)

GermXit® has been tested and proven effective against a long list of pathogens, airborne and non-airborne.

It works by destroying the spore/cell membrane, inactivating the pathogen.

Due to Novel coronavirus being a new strain of pathogen, opportunities for tests are limited at the moment.

What do we know about viruses?
  • Viruses depend on the host cells that they infect to reproduce.
  • Viruses need a host, another living organism that gives them everything they need to work. 
  • Viruses take any chance they can to find a host. They get inside the host’s cells and take it over.

GermXit® is working 24/7 reducing the number of bacteria/microorganisms in the air, that can serve as host cells for the virus to spread.

If there is any risk of airborne infection outbreak, it’s always better to take preventive measures to reduce these risks to a minimum, be it common cold, influenza or a dangerous pathogen.

Thus, even though tests of GermXit for efficiency against Novel coronavirus hasn’t been conducted yet, it will provide additional protection by removing the hosts, that can spread the virus.

GermXit® has been proven efficient against the following pathogens:

Airborne bacteria:

S. aureus ATCC 6538 (Mahidol University, 2015)

S. choleraesuis ATCC 10708 (Mahidol University, 2015)

E. coli ATCC 25922 (Monash University, 2002)

E. coli ATCC 10536 (PSB Corporation, Singapore, 2003)

Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538 (PSB Corporation, Singapore, 2003)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15422 (PSB Corporation, Singapore, 2003)

Salmonella typhimurium ATCC 14028 (PSB Corporation, Singapore, 2003)
