As stated by the CDC, “there are no products with specific label claims against the Ebola virus.” However, Ebola is considered an enveloped virus similar to Influenza and HIV, so using a product that kills non-enveloped such as rotavirus and poliovirus is highly recommended to kill the enveloped viruses.
The Safetec® product line of SaniZide Plus® and SaniZide Pro® are demonstrated to be effective against numerous enveloped viruses and kill at least one of the common non-enveloped viruses (e.g. norovirus, rotavirus, and poliovirus). The CDC also advises that because non-enveloped viruses are more resistant to disinfectants, a disinfectant with a higher potency than what is normally required for an enveloped virus is recommended at this time.
