Effectiveness of hypochlorous acid for eradicating coronavirus on hard surfaces

We are experiencing a health crisis in the form of a novel coronavirus - COVID-19. It has spread rapidly and overwhelmed many healthcare systems. Many health authorities and businesses have increased sanitization requirements including hospitals, nursing stations, long-term care facilities, shopping malls, grocery stores, and office towers. With this new solution we will be able to provide a product that can create more benefits and less harm to fight the pandemic. However, we need the support of a research institute like UBC for further testing to provide the product to general public as soon as we possible.
