CHLOR-ALKALI TO THE RESCUE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19

Alkali Manufacturers Association of India (AMAI) has underlined the need to exercise caution while using disinfection chemicals directly on human beings.

For disinfection of surfaces and the re-usables, 0.5% Sodium Hypochlorite Solution are highly recommended – WHO and UNICEF WASH-IPC 2020 Document on Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Waste Management for the COVID-19 Virus

Minimum 0.5 ppm Free Residual Chlorine for 30 minutes in water distribution to be maintained – WHO and UNICEF WASH-IPC 2020 Document on Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Waste Management for the COVID-19 Virus

Toilets and the handling of faeces: If a bedpan is used, after disposing of excreta from it, the bedpan should be cleaned with a neutral detergent and water, disinfected with a 0.5% chlorine solution, and then rinsed with clean water; the rinse water should be disposed of in a drain or a toilet or latrine – WHO and UNICEF WASH-IPC 2020 Document on Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Waste Management for the COVID-19 Virus

Sodium hypochlorite at 0.5% (equivalent to 5000 ppm or 1 part household bleach of 5% sodium hypochlorite to 9 parts water) for disinfecting surfaces; If the towels are single use, they should be treated as infectious waste; if they are reusable, they should be treated as soiled linens. The area should then be cleaned and disinfected (with, for example, 0.5% free chlorine solution) – WHO and UNICEF WASH-IPC 2020 Document on Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Waste Management for the COVID-19 Virus
