The need for proper disinfection and other preventive measures is critical now as the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) reports that flu virus outbreaks are
widespread in virtually all U.S. states
along with a reported dramatic increase in
flu deaths among young and middle-aged adults.
Lonza Consumer Care’s Hygiene business offers
the comprehensive Lonzagard® line of highly effective disinfectant formulations that are helping
hospitals and healthcare providers, homeowners, school janitorial cleaning service personnel and
others combat seasonal flu viruses causing serious illnesses.
Flu virus outbreaks can become a global problem at this time of year. According to the European
Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, each year, around 10% of the European population are
infected with influenza-related complications, which cause many cases of severe disease and
hospitalizations. Read more.
As protection, health authorities recommend frequent and regular hand washing with soap or
antibacterial hand soaps, and the use of disinfectants or sanitizers to clean high-contact hard
surfaces such as faucet and refrigerator handles, kitchen counters and bathrooms. See World Health Organization instruction.
Available worldwide in multiple delivery methods (disinfecting wipes, sprays and liquids),
Lonzagard® formulations act quickly to eliminate flu viruses as well as other pathogenic
bacteria and viruses on multiple hard surfaces.
