Sanitizers to combat virus outbreaks

3 February 2020

The recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus, also known as 2019-nCoV, is believed to have originated from the city of Wuhan in the Hubei province of China and has since been determined by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be a public health emergency of international concern. At the time of this writing, the worldwide death toll has exceeded 360 with the number of confirmed infections at over 17,000. These numbers are set to rise significantly in the coming days and weeks. Although there is still much to learn about this new virus, it is widely acknowledged that good hygiene practices such as the frequent washing of hands with soap and water can reduce the likelihood of getting infected. However, there are instances where we have no access to soap and water. This is where hand sanitizers with broad spectrum antimicrobial properties can help. Here at Cosmic Discovery Sdn Bhd, we have for over two decades been developing and supplying cost-effective sanitizers with high virucidal, bactericidal and fungicidal efficacy to various industries that include F&B and institutional cleaning. To cope with the rapidly increasing demand for sanitizers, from institutions to individuals, we now offer an expanded range of packing sizes. Take a look at the product descriptions below to see which sanitizer best suits your needs.
