Given that Purell, which contains alcohol ONLY, has formally admitted that it doesn’t have studies documenting that it kills Coronavirus

PLEASE PASS ON !!!

[Note: Given that Purell, which contains alcohol ONLY, has formally admitted that it doesn’t have studies documenting that it kills Coronavirus (see email from them to Ron Panzer, below), and given the millions of human lives at stake, and given that ONLY Purell is provided to passengers on these various kinds of ships, provided in hospitals, health care centers, dentists’ offices, physicians’ and nurses’ offices and their hospital medical staffs, store employees across the board, etc. (not to mention decades of ONLY Purell supplied to ship passengers who suffered and died from contracting Norovirus!), shouldn’t our government officials revise their positions immediately, including our CDC, etc.?   Shouldn’t the public and our officials at least be able to make a choice by also providing them with products that DO kill Coronavirus — rather than just continue with providing ONLY Purell across the board even though Purell admits that it doesn’t kill Coronavirus — and continue causing millions of deaths??  There are already many products that do kill viruses, and even safe to use on hands (e.g., 3% hydrogen peroxide, even UV light!); many more could be rapidly developed!

The email copied below from Purell’s producer, GOJO, was sent to Ron Panzer who requested documentation from them that their product kills Coronavirus. Ron is founder of Hospice Patients Alliance [https://www.hospicepatients.org/], is a nurse, and HPA President.   With his consent I am forwarding GOJO’s email response to him to you, with my emphases in “bold red” included within the e-mail itself. These emphases are marks of serious points of concern with their remarks:

  1. Purell admits that its formula kills bacteria — but stops short of saying that it also kills viruses.
  2. Not true that the FDA has not approved any other hand sanitizers or hand sanitizing wipes as safe and effective for the prevention of coronavirus, as both Clorox and Lysol sprays and handi-wipes have been so documented, as well as several other sanitizers that could be used on hands (e.g., 3% hydrogen peroxide, etc.).
  3. One “scientific” study (even assuming it is true) does not an objective scientific fact make.                 Purell claims it is sharing “scientific knowledge” about ONE study, on a different virus. But it provides no URL for the “Table” presented, a single experiment does NOT pass the Scientific Method (including Replication by independent researchers in independent labs around the world) and thus is not an objective scientific fact, and no one can be sure if the researchers/company proving such “scientific knowledge” within this Table are under any undue influence from Purell or it’s producer, GOJO.
  4. Purell states specifically that it has published NO SPECIFIC STUDIES documenting that its product kills Coronavirus!!!

Hi Ron,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding activity of PURELL Hand Sanitizers and efficacy against Coronavirus. Before answering this question, we must inform you that hand sanitizers and hand sanitizing wipes are regulated as Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs by the FDA and are indicated for use on hands to help reduce bacteria that can cause disease. FDA has not approved these (or any other) hand sanitizers or hand sanitizing wipes as safe and effective for the prevention of coronavirus. Consequently, we do not make any claims that use of these products will prevent infection by COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends practicing good hand hygiene to help prevent the spread of this type of respiratory illness “Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds… If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.”  (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/prevention-treatment.html). Our PURELL advanced products are all formulated with 70% alcohol.

FDA does permit the sharing of scientific knowledge regarding off-label information in cases such as your request.  We can share that an independent laboratory has tested a similar strain of Coronavirus, SARS-associated coronavirus, CDC strain 200300592, like the one that is currently causing the COVID-19 pandemic in many parts of the world. The data has shown a greater than a six-log reduction of the virus in a 30 second contact time (Table 1).

Hi,

We are in healthcare and wish to see the actual scientific evidence that your hand sanitizer inactivates and protects people from infection from the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus that causes the COVID 19 illness.

Please provide the name of and a link to scientific studies so we can read what studies have been done.

Sincerely,

Ron Panzer
