Protect your family from any possible contact with Ebola virus.  The Ladybug® with TANCS® is an EPA regulated disinfection device and will kill the enveloped Ebola virus - probably better than any chemical disinfectant.  As an enveloped virus, Ebola is sensitive to heat and it is the heat of the Ladybug® that does the work of killing viruses. While the CDC says the Ebola virus cannot be transmitted via any airborne vector, it can survive on surfaces.  In fact, the CDC has said that Ebola virus can remain viable on solid surfaces for several days. "Ebola viruses are transmitted through direct contact with blood or body fluids/substances (e.g., urine, feces, vomit) of an infected person with symptoms or through exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected blood or body fluids. The role of the environment in transmission has not been established. Limited laboratory studies under favorable conditions indicate that Ebolavirus can remain viable on solid surfaces, with concentrations falling slowly over several days." And now the WHO (World Health Organization) has issued a bulletin indicating that Ebola can spread via indirect contact with contaminated surfaces and aerosolized droplets produced from coughing or sneezing. "...wet and bigger droplets from a heavily infected individual, who has respiratory symptoms caused by other conditions or who vomits violently, could transmit the virus -- over a short distance -- to another nearby person," says a W.H.O. bulletin released this week. "This could happen when virus-laden heavy droplets are directly propelled, by coughing or sneezing..." That same bulletin also says, "The Ebola virus can also be transmitted indirectly, by contact with previously contaminated surfaces and objects." In other words, the WHO just confirmed what the CDC says is impossible: Ebola can be acquired by touching a contaminated surface. The virus may not a concern for you right now, but isn't it good to know that you can protect your environment from these dangerous bugs with a Ladybug®?     *The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends using a registered hospital disinfectant with a label claim for a non-enveloped virus (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) to disinfect environmental surfaces in rooms of patients with suspected or confirmed Ebola virus infection. Although there are no products with specific label claims against the Ebola virus, enveloped viruses such as Ebola are susceptible to a broad range of hospital disinfectants used to disinfect hard, non-porous surfaces. In contrast, non-enveloped viruses are more resistant to disinfectants. As a precaution, selection of a disinfectant product with a higher potency than what is normally required for an enveloped virus is being recommended at this time. EPA-registered hospital disinfectants with label claims against non-enveloped viruses (e.g., norovirus, rotavirus, adenovirus, poliovirus) are broadly antiviral and capable of inactivating both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.
