Dr. Ankush Gupta (HBCSE-TIFR), Mumbai
In this talk, I would first present an overview of research results available so far on inactivation of SARS- coronaviruses. Then I would talk about the properties of common disinfecting and sanitizing chemicals being used currently and safe practices to be followed and mistakes to avoid while using these chemicals. After looking at possibilities and effects of such chemicals on environment and human health, we would also look for long term thinking that needs to be cultivated to maintain healthy and safe environments in COVID-19 times.
This information may be particularly important for developing cleaning protocols for homes and shared working spaces in institutions.
All are welcome to attend.
