Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak

2019-nCoV is an enveloped virus that belongs to the Coronaviruses group. Coronaviruses can cause respiratory infections in mammals and birds, going from common colds to pneumonia and bronchitis. Coronaviruses have the particularity to cause both upper (nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx) and lower (lungs) respiratory tract infections. They can be transmitted from human to human when there is a close contact via droplets when sneezing and coughing. Those droplets can reach the nasal cavity, the mouth or directly the lungs at a distance of 1.8 m.
Infected people can be contagious during the viral incubation period, even if they are asymptomatic, and they become more contagious when symptoms start to appear. Transmission through inanimate objects was not proven yet but is maybe possible.

The main recommendation from the CDC, the WHO, and other important organisms is to use an alcohol-based hand-rub or hand-wash for at least 20 seconds, more importantly after going to the bathroom, before eating, before touching your face. Concerning frequently touched objects, it is recommended to wash and disinfect them regularly.
However, it is important to make sure that the Sanitizer you are using is efficacious against Coronaviruses. The virucidal activity of Sanitizers is tested following different European standards, depending on their application.

For Hand Hygiene, it is important that the Sanitizer complies with the standard EN 14476, and tested against human adenovirus.
