    Outbreak Alert

     

    ***ALERT*** Our products have now been successfully tested against the COVID-19 coronavirus.

     

    In recent weeks, a new and unknown virus (COVID-19) has developed in China and has now spread to 50+ countries globally.

     

    At the time of writing, there have been 162,687 confirmed cases and 6,065 deaths. The US has declared a national emergency, Italy has quarantined the entire country, more EU countries are expected to follow and New Zealand will quarantine all International arrivals from midnight tonight.

     

    All New Zealand organisations should now be implementing pandemic response plans and carefully considering the possible disruption and business continuity implications of this global outbreak.

    What is the Coronavirus?

    COVID-19

    • Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) has surfaced in China and is a new strain that hasn’t been previously identified in humans. 
       
    • Coronaviruses are normally zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people. Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from dromedary camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans.
       
    • On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organisation China Office was informed of cases of pneumonia (of unknown cause) detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China. A novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified as the causative virus by Chinese authorities on 7 January.
       
    • Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
       
    • WHO estimates coronavirus is about as contagious as the Spanish flu, more than twice as infectious as the common flu.

    24/7 Outbreak Response - New Zealand Nationwide

    Our Expertise

    For over 5 years, Clear Facilities has offered a 24/7 service for dealing with serious outbreaks of illness. We are the most experienced company in New Zealand offering these services and have successfully responded to influenza, measles, MRSA, whooping cough and norovirus outbreaks.

    Our Outbreak Services

    Reactive or preventative programs

    We offer services both preventatively and reactively – dealing with a specific event such as a localised outbreak of illness (for example norovirus) or responding to epidemic or pandemic situations (for example, the recent measles outbreak) or the current Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

     

    Our outbreak response service includes rapid scheduling of people and resources, project management, health and safety preparations, site treatments and lab testing and reporting.

  • Clear Protect

    Revolutionary Antimicrobial Protection

    Clear Protect Product Range

    In partnership with the Zoono Group, a New Zealand biotech company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, Clear Facilities has developed an exclusive range of products for the commercial sector - the Clear Protect range.

     

    The Clear Protect difference is longevity and residual protection.

     

    The Clear Protect range has been tested and proven internationally to provide long lasting protection against bacteria, viruses and mould.

     

    Manufactured in New Zealand, the technology works by bonding to surfaces to create a protective shield that continuously kills germs for extended periods of time. Once applied to a surface it will protect the surface for up to 30-days, even after regular cleaning. On hands, Zoono’s 24-Hour Hand Protectant provides 24-hour protection with one application and stays on skin even after regular hand washing.

     

    The range is safe, non-toxic and has full New Zealand food safety approval, including direct food contact. It is proven to be highly effective against 100+ dangerous pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, mould, and fungi.

    Effectiveness Against Wuhan Coronavirus (2019 n-CoV)

    Clear Facilities uses a cutting edge range of products for decontaminating and protecting buildings. This range includes Clear Protect 30 (powered by Zoono Z-71 Microbe Shield) which has been successfully tested against viruses in the coronaviridae family (test results supplied with this document).

     

    When the MERS outbreak occurred in 2012, it was noted by WHO that it was a novel strain of Coronavirus MERS nCoV) and Zoono Z-71 Microbe Shield was sent for testing in Germany at MikroLab. The test results showed 99.99% efficacy after 5 minutes.

     

    The World Health Organisation nominated bovine coronavirus as the recognised surrogate for testing against MERS and has kept the same surrogate for subsequent tests against other ‘strains’ from within the broader coronaviridae family. Strictly speaking, Clear Protect 30 (powered by Zoono Z-71 Microbe Shield) has been successfully tested against MERS (and others) via the surrogate used for all CoV tests.

     

    Based on the testing detailed above, we believe Clear Protect antimicrobial fogging in your facilities will help to protect against cross contamination in the event that staff, contractors or visitors enter the premises (knowingly or unknowingly) with the virus.
