From a CNN report:
(SDN) — AS the December 2019 novel coronavirus continues its seemingly inexorable death-causing spread across Earth, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released names of disinfectants to fight the virus.
CNN reported the EPA’s issuance of the list today, March 6, 2020.
The EPA made the list available apparently because of increasing number of Covid-19 spread in the US, which has now more than 10 deaths from the disease that originated in Wuhan, the epicenter, in Hubei province, China.
While more fatalities are reported in South Korea, India, and Iran, China continues to have the biggest number of coronavirus cases and deaths, more than 80,000 confirmed cases and over 2,900 deaths.
Globally, the tally from Johns Hopkins University is nearing 100,000 confirmed cases and more than 3,300 fatalities.
