Does Lysol Kill Coronavirus Covid-19 (Spray, Can, Wipes, Foam)


Until tests are performed, disinfectants (Lysol Included) cannot claim with 100% certainty that a product will be effective for killing 2019 Novel Coronavirus which has now been officially named: Covid-19

However, because the Covid-19 threat is considered urgent, the EPA is allowing APPROVED registrants to make “limited” claims as to which of their products may be effective at killing 2019 Novel Coronavirus based upon the product’s ability to kill “Similar” Coronavirus strains on hard surfaces..

Similar strains human coronavirus would be something like SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) or MERS (Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome), both deadly strains of coronavirus that were genetically different that regular, common cold strains.

Lysol makers do have some hard surface area pesticides already registered for their ability to kill SARS the human coronavirus that plagued the world back in 2002 and that’s about as close as we can get for now. We did not find any with kill claims for MERS.
