Old Whittington company create product in a bid to combat coronavirus

It's being used in different parts of the world currently.

A small company based in Old Whittington reckon they've invented a product which kills coronavirus- and prevents surfaces that were contaminated with it, from being re-infected for two hours. 

The solution has been developed over a number of decades by A.G skincare, originally for use on fabrics and hospital scrubs.

Alan Taylor from the company says following further tests, they've turned it into wipes and a foaming handwash;

"It's primary use, is the fact that it retains its antiviral activity for a minimum of two hours, as per the tests we've carried out.

"We would very much like to bring this to the public's attention."

The product is currently being used in Asia, but hasn't been rolled out by the NHS yet.
