Background On Coronavirus

 Background On Coronavirus

What is Covid-19 – the illness that started in Wuhan?

A member of the coronavirus family that has never been encountered before causes it. Like other coronaviruses, it has come from animals. Many of those initially infected either worked or frequently shopped in the human seafood wholesale market in the centre of the Chinese city.

What are the symptoms this coronavirus causes?

The virus can cause pneumonia. Those who have fallen ill are reported to suffer coughs, fever and breathing difficulties. In severe cases there can be organ failure. As this is viral pneumonia, antibiotics are of no use. The antiviral drugs we have against flu will not work. Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system. Many of those who have died were already in poor health.

Government has set out guidelines to deal with the Coronavirus:

Contain – Delay – Research

Contain part is happening now; it involves monitoring people from high-risk areas and getting them to self-isolate.

Delay part is where KCS Cleaning can offer a number of different services and advice. Things that can be done to prevent infection;

Clean Regular Germ Hotspots using ‘Virucidal Cleaner’ – Regular disinfectants can’t kill the virus and don’t have a residual effect.


  • Card Machines
  • Keyboards
  • Gym Equipment
  • Reception Desks
  • Door Handles
  • Taps & Sinks
  • Hand Dryers
  • Handrails
  • Touch Screens
  • Tables and Chairs
  • Toilets including Flush

Fogging – KCS would also recommend Fogging with Chemspec 429, in germ hot spots areas.

  • Fogging is a way of disinfecting large areas quickly and effectively
  • Fogging is simply the creation of a cloud of liquid in air. The droplets of atomised liquid in the airborne fog are very small and able to penetrate deep into structures and surfaces, thus improving the performance of the product and the outcome of the task.

Hand Wash – staff and customers must have access to Hand Sanitiser, we currently have some in stock, if you have requirements for these or ‘Virucidal Cleaner’ please get in touch
