List of CBC's Approved Products for Killing Coronavirus

The Center for Biocide Chemistries (CBC) provided a list of “100 ready-to-use, dilutable, and wipeable biocidal products” that are both approved by EPA and effective at killing the novel coronavirus.

The American Chemistry Council quoted Komal K. Jain, Executive Director of CBC, as saying, “The 2019 novel coronavirus is not your typical household cold, and members of the CBC are here to help.”

The CBC says that providing the list is a public service that takes the pressure off of federal, state, and local health officials, allowing them to focus their energy on other areas. CBC is working with public officials to make the list available to all those who need it.

The novel coronavirus spreads by person-to-person contact or from surface-to-person contact. That’s especially true in crowded or high-trafficked areas such as public transportation, countertops, and light and plumbing fixtures that aren’t cleaned and sanitized.
