The virus we’re dealing with today has its own name. It’s called Sars-CoV-2 which stands for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. This virus causes a disease which has been named Covid-19 (‘COV’ for coronavirus; ‘ID’ for infectious disease; and ’19’ only because it emerged in 2019).
When folks started passing around the Lysol can photo listing that it kills Sars-coronavirus, a lot of folks were surprised to know coronavirus is not a new thing. However, we are dealing with a new thing with Sars-Cov-2. The good news is Lysol and most other disinfectants will kill the new virus even if it’s not listed on the can.
