The influenza H1N1 virus responsible for the current swine flu outbreak is an influenza type A virus. Although these viruses mutate rapidly, the EPA believes, based on currently available scientific information, that the currently registered influenza A virus products will be effective against the 2009 H1N1 flu strain and other influenza A virus strains. Independent laboratory tests have shown that Microban® Germicidal Cleaner Concentrate and Microban® Germicidal Cleaner, when used according to its label instructions, are effective against the Type A influenza virus.
Because viral infections frequently make the patient more susceptible to secondary viral and bacterial infections, it is wise to use a broad spectrum product such as Microban®.
Carpet and upholstery can provide an environment for germs, viruses and mold.
Use of Microban® Germicidal Cleaner Concentrate and Microban® Germicidal Cleaner enables compliance with recommendations made by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for infection control and care of patients with confirmed or suspected H1N1 Virus (Swine Influenza “A”).
