EPA gives nod to first disinfectant sprays approved for use against virus on surfaces

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has given Lysol the stamp of approval for some of the company’s disinfectant sprays in killing SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces.

The EPA on Monday approved Lysol Disinfectant Spray and Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist as the two sprays which have been tested to show they are effective against SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces.

The sprays were tested directly against the virus according to the EPA, proving claims they would be effective. The sprays join 420 other products the EPA has approved for use against the virus.

These are the first disinfectant sprays to be approved and the EPA expects to approve others in the coming weeks.
