The corona virus is transmitted by droplet infection and can enter the human organism via mucous membranes, i.e. via the mouth and nose, but also via the eyes.

Looking for the right one disinfectant the question arises: do I need one disinfectant for my skin or for surfaces? A surface disinfectant should not be used on hands and vice versa, since surface disinfectants can contain substances such as aldehydes or chloramines, which are anything but suitable for the skin. hand sanitizer is usually based on alcohols such as ethanol and propanol.
