The Continuing Evolution of the Ultimate COVID Disinfectant Fogger
The Changing Landscape, Same Fundamental Needs
It’s been a rollercoaster ride since the COVID-19 pandemic first reared its head, but some things remain unchanged. The need for fast, easy, and effective disinfection methods with a reliable supply chain remains paramount. If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that public health is a shared responsibility, and effective disinfection is a crucial part of that equation.
In our previous article, we delved deep into the intricacies of the fogging technology, particularly emphasizing the efficacy of the CURIS System. As the pandemic has progressed and we've witnessed shifts and changes in its dynamics, it's crucial to revisit this essential tool. Let's explore what has changed and what remains pertinent today.
Applicators, Applications, and Approvals: Where We Are Now
When we last touched on this topic, we emphasized the importance of dual-registered disinfection systems, often called foggers in the healthcare world—these are systems that are tested and approved by the EPA not just for the chemical solution but for the device dispensing it. CURIS, leveraging its patented Pulse™ technology, was among those systems that set the gold standard for effectiveness and reliability.
A Consistent Necessity: Quick, Effective, American-Made Disinfection
The core need remains as significant today as when the pandemic first surfaced: fast, effective, and dependable disinfection. The added emphasis on "Made in the USA" with a reliable supply chain remains, stressing the importance of portable disinfection systems that are locally sourced and maintain the standards expected.
The Changing Landscape: New Strains and Disinfection Fatigue
However, as with any ongoing crisis, the landscape of the pandemic is continually changing. Notably:
Emergence of New Strains:COVID-19 has seen the emergence of several strains, with the recent Omicron BA.2 and Pirola Omicron variants taking center stage. These strains add a layer of complexity to the battle, underscoring the need for adaptive and robust disinfection strategies.
Disinfection FatigueAn unforeseen challenge has been the rise of "disinfection fatigue." People across the globe have grown weary of the constant need for heightened levels of disinfection. The prospect of using complicated, heavy, or labor-intensive equipment further exacerbates this fatigue.
CURIS to the Rescue: Addressing New Challenges
CURIS continues to stand as a beacon of hope in these trying times. With its lightweight, portable, and versatile disinfection systems, CURIS not only targets the known strains but also prepares for the emerging threats like the aforementioned Omicron variants.
Reinforcing the Importance of EPA Registration
In our initial discussion, we talked about the EPA’s Lists N and Q for Ebola and emerging viral pathogen approval, which contain disinfectants specifically approved to kill coronavirus. Staying updated on this list and reading the directions for use on the product label continue to be essential steps.
Re-emphasizing the Unique Advantage of CURIS
A pivotal point worth restating is how CURIS's disinfection technology ensures comprehensive reach. Conventional wiping might miss spots, but the CURIS disinfectant ensures every nook and cranny is addressed. This precision becomes even more crucial when considering the mutating nature of the virus.
Adapting to the New Norm
The pandemic has, in many ways, reshaped our world. Yet, amidst this shift, the importance of reliable, effective, and efficient disinfection methods remains unchanged. With innovations like CURIS, we can combat the evolving challenges and, at the same time, alleviate the growing disinfection fatigue.
While CURIS was once hailed as the pinnacle of COVID fogging, it has now proven its mettle beyond this particular use. As the world continues to grapple with the ever-present threat of the virus and its variants, the CURIS System remains a trustworthy ally, constantly evolving and adapting just as we all are.
To those considering the future of disinfection in this changing landscape, one thing remains clear: CURIS stands ready, offering not just a solution for today but a promise for a safer tomorrow.
