What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a disease. “CO” stands for “corona,” “VI” stands for virus, “D” stands for disease, and “19” stands for the year “2019.” This disease was first referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” and may also be referred to as "SARS-CoV-2". For the best information on COVID-19, please visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s website.
How is COVID-19 spread?
This coronavirus is spread when an infected individual releases SARS-CoV-2 into their environment which then get picked up by an uninfected individual. According to the CDC, COVID-19 is mainly spread person to person, but this virus can also be spread by being in the environment (surfaces and air) that an infected individual interacted with.
How does the BIOPROTECTUS System help stop the spread of germs?
The BIOPROTECTUS SYSTEM creates a protective advantage. Once the surface is cleaned and disinfected, BioProtect forms a layer on surface where it is applied that neutralizes microbes and stops the spread of illness causing germs on that surface. Common cleaning protocols use cleaners that successfully eliminate germs on that surface; however, once you are finished cleaning, that area can easily become re-exposed to germs or microbes like harmful bacteria or viruses. The BIOPROTECTUS System creates a long-term protective layer on surfaces that is 99.999% effective.
How exactly does BIOPROTECT protect us from MICROBES AND BACTERIA?
BIOPROTECT severely reduces and controls the population (dose) & spread (transfer) of microorganisms in your environment. When applied to a surface during cleaning, BIOPPROTECT forms a covalent bond with the substrate and creates a nano-bed shield of spikes which carry a positive charge. Those spikes then attract the negatively charged membranes of bacteria and other microbes (coronavirus). Once attracted, the cell membrane of the microbe gets pierced and ruptured by the molecular spikes of BIOPROTECT causing that bacterial microorganism to die.
