anit-virus spray?


Hi all,
I hope you are all keeping well.
I sometime see, on TV, people
spaying places with something(?). I assume it's to deactivate or ??? COVID19.
Does anyone know what they're spraying?
Thanks,
........... john

You may be seeing people spraying disinfectants. There are many commercial disinfectant sprays that will destroy the virus.

This CNN page list several of them.

Are you looking for a homemade disinfectant?

Hi Tripolar,

Yes, I assumed it was some sort of disinfectant.
I would imagine it's relatively harmless, and was just wondering what it might be.
Just curious.
Thanks for the liink.

Thanks for the link. Mostly what I see is inside spraying, and it looks like some sort of fog.
