NovaBay says Avenova spray kills coronavirus

NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced on Monday testing results, which confirmed that the company's disinfectant spray Avenova kills SARS-CoV-2 (the novel coronavirus).

"Most COVID-19 transmission is likely due to person-to-person contact as respiratory droplets containing the virus spread through the air by speaking or even breathing, and reach others in close proximity. These large droplets transmit the virus by entering the body typically through the eyes, nose or mouth," NovaBay's Chief Executive Justin Hall said, explaining why the product could be so successful.

However, the company warned that the disinfectant is not an official COVID-19 treatment, as the FDA hasn't approved it yet. Furthermore, the study has proved Avenova's effectiveness against the virus on a hard surface and not skin, as the research didn't involve live subjects.
