When considering deep clean protocol during the Corona virus crisis, business owners and facilities managers need to be aware of the potential risks around antimicrobial resistance (AMR) too.
It is vital you choose products that do not increase the risk of AMR within the workplace in order to minimise the risk of future infections which could lead to fatalities.
Due to the make-up of the product, our Provilan probiotics range kills Corona virus BUT will not cause additional AMR health issues afterwards. The surfactants in the product break the virus apart, with the probiotics then feeding on the broken components. In addition, they out– compete pathogenic bacteria and cause them to perish from lack of food.
Studies show that -one in seven Covid-19 hospital admissions contract a bacterial Health care-associated infection (HCAI), with 50% of Covid-19 related deaths originating from this group.
Since the first Covid-19 death, over 270,000 people have died worldwide from AMR (as caused by biocide cleaning and misuse of antibiotics). In fact, from April 2017 to April 2018, 65,500 people died in England from bacterial infection, something that the World Health Organisation is acutely aware of.
By removing pathogenic bacteria through bio-competition, the potential for AMR is eliminated with results showing that it is actually reduced. The same process reduces bio films on surfaces, thus reducing the surface habitats for the virus. The probiotics continue to stay active for up to three days, offering protection against even the strongest resistant pathogenic bacteria.
Finally, I would also like to mention that there is a higher duty of care too, when using our products. With cleaning operatives with an excess of 10 years’ experience being 58% more likely to get lung cancer, tests show our cleaning products achieve the top rating for safety, meaning we can rest assured we are providing our staff with the highest level of care.
