New Study by CDC finds “Only 5% Peracetic Acid consistently reduced EBOV titers in dried blood”
Treating patients with the Ebola virus (EBOV) is difficult and dangerous. Ebola virus patients can expel several liters of bodily fluids in a day. Every surface they touch can be a source of further virus transmission. Healthcare workers wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to guard against accidental exposure, but that PPE can be contaminated by bodily fluids including dried blood.
Both the PPE and other surfaces must be completely decontaminated. But many of the decontamination solutions currently used by HAZMAT crews including bleach are not always effective against EBOV. In addition, bleach and many other decontamination solutions are corrosive and can easily damage PPE and sensitive equipment used by healthcare workers.
