Following a series of stringent virucidal tests against the Covid-19 virus over a span of seven days, the Dr. Clo stick solution was found to achieve more than 99.93% virus reduction rate in treatment times ranging from 30 seconds to two minutes.
Announcing this breakthrough at a cross-border virtual media event recently, Leela Lee, Executive Director, NON Corporation Ltd in South Korea said the laboratory tests were conducted by KR Biotech Co. Ltd under the Institute of Infectious Disease Control of Konkuk University.
“This ground-breaking discovery is a significant milestone as it helps confirm the efficacy of Dr. Clo’s disinfectant sticks for use in homes, offices and in other spaces such as healthcare facilities,” Lee added.
Ng Lyp Hau, Director of Dr. Clo Malaysia highlighted that while this multi-purpose patented portable sterilisation unit is a non-medical device, it is designed to provide airborne protection; creating a shield against bacteria and viruses. Each single-use stick can last up to 50 days.
The unit is the only liquid-based Chlorine Dioxide product in the world registered with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Chlorine dioxide acts as a key agent to sterilise, sanitise and eliminate viruses and pathogens in a matter of seconds.
Following heightened health and safety concerns both locally and globally due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Dr. Clo Malaysia is embarking on their inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in Malaysia in combatting the pandemic. It will be donating 4000 Dr. Clo disinfectant sticks worth more than RM250,000 to Sabah State Health Department and other frontliners.
“We are starting in Sabah; by providing 1,000 of the disinfectant sticks to medical front liners. This is to support ongoing efforts and keep the virus at bay.” said Ng.
