Kiwi Sanitiser being used in the fight against killer virus
Mike Sommerville, of professional services company Sterico, has been applying Zoono Z-71 surface sanitiser at the Auckland school, saying it will last 30 days on surfaces against viruses, bacteria and mould.
He said regular disinfectant does not remain effective for very long whereas the Zoono product has fantastic benefits.
The share price of Zoono soared more than 200 percent following the coronavirus outbreak spreading throughout the world.
The company released an announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange confirming its product had been tested and proven to protect against Covid-19.
E-commerce sales of the $6 sanitiser had increased to $100,000 a day, up from about $20,000 per month, it said.
The biotech company's sanitiser is said to use a process called lysis, which forms a protective barrier that kills pathogens on contact.
It was tested against bovine coronavirus in 2012, but had been retested to against the latest Covid-19 strain, the ASX announcement said."
