The TGEV Coronavirus has the “enveloped virus” model structure of SARS CoV, and due to Liquid Guard’s independently verified effectiveness against it, we are certain that it is SARS CoV-2 effective. We have also been advised by a leading independent disinfection specialist accordingly. Furthermore, its effectiveness against Influenza A, Klebsiella pneumoniae (Pneumonia), MRSA and E.coli along with many other bacterial microbes (see list here) confirms its valuable contribution to continually reducing the chances of transient microbial infection.
Currently testing against SARS CoV 2 for the commercial market has only just become available and we will update on results in due course.
