Dr Lesley Larkin of UKHSA specifically warned that alcohol-based hand sanitizers do not kill Norovirus and stressed the importance of hand hygiene in helping to stop the spread of the disease.

Norovirus is highly contagious and can be caught through contact with infected people or contaminated surfaces. It spreads rapidly and can live for a many days outside a host. Symptoms include sudden vomiting, diarrhoea, a temperature, headache, and stomach cramps.

When it’s not possible to wash your hands, it’s important to use a good hand sanitiser that can kill the virus such as Protectus ViridisTM handrub. It’s been independently tested and specifically proven to be 99.99% effective against Norovirus and suitable for use on sensitive skin.

Protectus ViridisTM handrub, surface spray and wipes are all highly efficacious at killing bacteria, viruses and mould. They also have a residual efficacy which means once applied, they continue to protect from recontamination for up to 24 hours on surfaces and 4 hours on hands.
