Following the increasingly serious reports from Wuhan, China regarding the coronavirus outbreak, Vernacare are proud to announce that we have supported the Foreign Office in providing much needed medical supplies to help control the spread of the virus.
The Foreign Office’s Spanish Ambassador was in Madrid Airport last week, helping to prepare medical supplies that have now been sent out to China to help the Chinese authorities tackle the coronavirus outbreak. As part of this package, Vernacare’s Azo wipes were also sent.
The coronavirus is thought to be able to survive on surfaces for several hours, so effective environmental cleaning and disinfection is vital to reduce the risk of transmission. Azo wipes are a crucial infection control step, helping to ensure that the spread of the virus in hospitals and healthcare facilities is limited as much as possible.
With news this week that the UK Government has now declared a ‘serious and imminent threat’ to public health, strong infection prevention and control methods are more crucial than ever - find out what products Vernacare recommend here.
