Sudáfrica: fabrican desinfectante en base de jugo de naranja
A small South African Biotech company says it has made a disinfectant which can kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus types. Bizarrely the secret behind it is orange juice.
South African biotech company Biodx, along with researchers from the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), have spent the last 15 years developing the disinfectant, not just for the novel coronavirus but for other pathogens.
“Conventional chemicals were falling short of controlling modern pathogenic outbreaks, for example – listeriosis, and decided to embark on a search for natural, sustainable raw materials that are new to the many pathogens encountered today,” said Burt Rodrigues, CEO of Biodx and the man behind the disinfectant.
