Control Norwalk Virus
Sanivir 1000 is based on silver stabilised Hydrogen Peroxide. It is a powerful biocide and the anti microbial properties of Sanivir 1000 make it an ideal disinfectant in the control of Norwalk virus.
Tests have shown that when used as a fogging agent Sanivir 1000 can kill and control the human Norovirus that can exist outside of the body for more than seven days. After fogging an infected room it can generally be reoccupied within twenty four hours.
Sanivir 1000 is safe to use with most fabrics and is the ideal disinfectant to use in a Norovirus “Deep Clean”.
Norovirus causes acute gastroenteritis that develops between 24 and 48 hours after exposure with a median of 33-36 hours, and lasts for 24-60 hours. Severe illness is rare: although people are frequently treated in emergency rooms/A&E, they are rarely admitted to the hospital. The number of deaths from Norovirus in the US is estimated to be around 300 each year, with most of these occurring in the very young, elderly and persons with weakened immune systems
Noroviruses are a major cause of acute gastroenteritis worldwide, often causing explosive outbreaks in institutions. They are highly contagious, with an inoculum of as few as ten particles being able to cause infection. Transmission occurs through ingesting
contaminated food and water and by personto-person spread. Transmission is predominantly faecal-oral but may be airborne due to aerosolisation of vomit.
