As the coronavirus death toll rises, innovative infection prevention methods are needed.

How Coronavirus Spreads


• The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
• Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
• Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Spread from contact with infected surfaces or objects

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

How long the coronavirus remains infectious

Early evidence suspects the virus can survive up to nine days.

Disinfectant Spraying: Best Coverage

• The agricultural and automotive industries have used electrostatic technology for decades to provide a more efficient and cost-effective method of applying chemicals and paint.
• Electrostatic application of chemicals dramatically increases droplet attraction and attachment to surfaces.
• Research indicates that electrostatic application is 8 times more effective than using an uncharged sprayer. This deposition of chemical happens when atomized droplets are discharged from the equipment nozzle and form a solid, uniform coating on the target surface.
• Studies: Multiple third-party laboratory studies have been performed using various chemicals and test microorganisms. In every instance, efficiency was improved AND efficacy claims maintained.

Advanced technologies exist to help fight against deadly microorganisms. One such innovative infection prevention and control product are the EMist electrostatic sprayers. Used to apply disinfectant during the 2014 Ebola outbreak, EMist is once again seeing increased interest in its patented technology to apply pathogen killing chemicals.

Applying chemical electrostatically is more efficient and effective. For most disinfectants to work, a targeted surface must be completely coated and remain wet for 10 minutes. Plus, all targeted surfaces need to be disinfected correctly – not just “high-touch” areas. Spray-and-wipe is hit-and-miss, leaving whole areas not disinfected. With electrostatic disinfection, every surface can be coated in less time, using less chemical, and with better outcomes.

Electrostatic Spraying Advantages

• Creates a powerful bond between the spray and surfaces.
• Even, uniform coverage.
• Wraparound effect.
• Easier. Faster. More Effective.
• Reduces labor and chemical costs.
