Ebola Virus Disease

EbolaIn view of the recent press and concerns raised by our valued customers we hope that you will find the following information useful.

We have had many enquiries regarding the effectiveness of disinfectants against the Ebola virus. The following information has been compiled by the chemists at Evans Vanodine, which we hope will be helpful.

No products have been tested against this virus and it is very unlikely that such testing will be carried out. There are only 2 reference laboratories in the UK that handle this Hazard Group 4 virus and these laboratories are engaged in diagnostic and vaccine research work. Due to this, these laboratories will not be testing any disinfectants for their effectiveness against the virus at this time. Therefore Evans, along with other companies, will not be able to have any products tested against the Ebola virus.

The website gives the Government’s response to the current Ebola outbreak and makes clear that the risk to the UK is low and that measures are in place to deal with suspected cases.

The Ebola virus is an enveloped virus and enveloped viruses are more susceptible to disinfectants than non-enveloped ones. However results against one enveloped virus cannot be used to prove activity against others, particularly a virus such as Ebola. Sodium hypochlorite (bleach) would be the best option (and is listed in the World Health Organisation guidance) and a broad range virucidal disinfectant for surface disinfection when there are no test results available.

Good hand hygiene is vitally important, especially for those caring for sick individuals, along with the use of gloves, protective clothing and masks. Advice regarding hand hygiene, and more information about the current outbreak, is given on the WHO website at as well as on their FAQ section

evans-footer-logoEvans Vanodine’s products include sodium hypochlorite (bleach) disinfectants, hand soaps and an alcohol hand rub, known as Handsan. Evans Handsan contains 70% Isopropanol and is proven to kill 99.999% of bacteria in 30 seconds.

Wash Your Hands, Its Global Handwashing Day!!

Established in 2001, Global Handwashing Day was originally created for children and schools. Each year on October 15th over 200 million people are involved in celebrations in over 100 countries around the world.

GHDResearch shows that children living in households exposed to hand washing promotion and soap had half the diarrhoea rates of children living in control neighbourhoods. Because hand washing can prevent the transmission of a variety of pathogens, it may be more effective than any single vaccine. Promoted on a wide enough scale, hand washing with soap can be thought of as a “do-it-yourself” vaccine.

Ingraining the habit of hand washing could save more lives than any single vaccine or medical intervention. Hand washing with soap is the most effective & inexpensive way to prevent diarrhoea & acute respiratory infections, which take the lives of millions of children in developing countries. Together, they are responsible for the majority of all child deaths.

Join us in supporting Global Handwashing Day today.
