ATLANTA - January 24, 2020 - ( Newswire.com )

​​The Wuhan coronavirus, a new and potentially fatal infection, has arrived in the U.S.  The first confirmed U.S. case of the coronavirus in Washington state has CDC officials and hospitals across the U.S. preparing for the possibility of the virus spreading here.  Fortunately, a new EPA-registered multi-surface cleaner not only eradicates coronaviruses and other dangerous viruses but also kills bacteria for 24 hours with a formulation classified as nontoxic by the EPA. The product is called Byotrol24™ ( www.Byotrol24.com ) and is available at Target.com. Byotrol24 sells for $3.99 in a liquid spray bottle and is available in two long-lasting scents: Lavender Morning™ and Hawaiian Sunrise Citrus™.

Byotrol24 is scientifically proven to eliminate coronaviruses, noroviruses, flu and cold viruses, E. coli, salmonella, staph, strep, listeria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other germs. Of particular note, not all surface cleaners sold in stores today are capable of eliminating the hard-to-kill norovirus, sometimes referred to as the winter vomiting bug. Spreading person to person easily, norovirus is reported by the CDC to result in up to 71,000 hospitalizations each year

Although not much is known about the novel Wuhan coronavirus, it appears capable of spreading human to human and is in the same family as the virus that causes SARS, which killed more than 700 people in 2002-03. With no vaccine available, effective hygiene and cleaning practices are a front line of defense.

Byotrol24 is specially formulated as a non-harsh disinfectant and long-lasting sanitizer that emits no chemical fumes and requires no gloves for use. Byotrol24 eliminates over 99.9% of germs on surfaces and is particularly useful on frequently touched spots such as handles, sinks, toilets and kids’ toys.

In addition, Byotrol24 can eliminate harmful microbes in workspaces, including desks, phones, conference tables and elevator buttons. In a busy office, germs are transferred easily from surface to surface. In fact, germs on one contaminated door handle can spread to 40-60% of other surfaces in the office within only a few hours, according to a study by the University of Arizona.

“Byotrol24 is a scientific breakthrough in germ control. It has been thoroughly tested and proven to kill a wide range of germs, including coronaviruses, and to control germs for a long period of time,” said Dr. Trevor Francis, chief technology officer for Byotrol. “This EPA-registered, nontoxic disinfecting formula with 24-hour sanitizing power can help stop the spread of germs and potentially save lives.”
