Regular bleach will not kill Ebola
« on: November 18, 2014, 04:06:10 PM »
I am posting this now as I have just received an email from Parkerhale308 with this info...


We have been bringing in bleach and hydrogen peroxide for cleaning in case of an Ebola pandemic..looks like neighter one of them will be usefull(good thing we can use them elsewhere for preps


here is the CDC guidelines


    • Use a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered hospital disinfectant with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) to disinfect environmental surfaces in rooms of patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection. Although there are no products with specific label claims against the Ebola virus, enveloped viruses such as Ebola are susceptible to a broad range of hospital disinfectants used to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces. In contrast, non-enveloped viruses are more resistant to disinfectants. As a precaution, selection of a disinfectant product with a higher potency than what is normally required for an enveloped virus is being recommended at this time. EPA-registered hospital disinfectants with label claims against non-enveloped viruses (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) are broadly antiviral and capable of inactivating both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.

    Regular household bleach has a concentration of 5.25%. However over time the effective concentration drops so the longer you store it the less concentrated it becomes. I fall fowl of this because I keep at least a years worth of stock and therefore do not use it up fast enough. There is also a high strength form available that is a 8.25%  solution of sodium hypochlorite although I have not seen it on the shelves around here.

    You can make your own concentrated bleach from pool shock. This should be done with caution as bleach is a corrosive and can be a dangerous chemical. Also there are different varieties of pool shock with different strengths and some that contain anti-fungal agents. The link goes into some depth for this issue and is well worth checking out.

    It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
