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.

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.
