A few days back, a Facebook post had gone viral, which said Dettol can cure Coronavirus. Now, the company’s manufacturer RB has reacted to the same and cleared the air about its disinfectant spray.

Dettol doesnt kill coronavirus company clarifies

The label on the back of Dettol spray bottle specified it can kill "cold viruses" (human coronavirus and RSV). RB has become aware of speculation about Dettol products and the novel 2019-nCoV coronavirus. As this is an emerging outbreak, RB, like all manufacturers, doesn't yet have access to the new virus (2019-nCoV) for testing and, as a result, are not yet in a position to confirm levels of effectiveness against the new strain," said the company and added, “it will continue to play our part in combating and containing the outbreak of the virus."

Coronavirus has resulted in the death of close to 500 in China and experts are fearing that it won’t slow down anytime soon. Millions have been confined to their houses in a bid to control the virus, which can spread from human to human.

“If the province was not sealed off, some people would have gone all around the country to try to get medical help, and would have turned the whole nation into an epidemic-stricken area,” said Yang Gonghuan, former deputy director general of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention. “The quarantine brought a lot of hardship to Hubei and Wuhan, but it was the right thing to do. It’s like fighting a war -- some things are hard, but must be done,” he added.
