Poliovirus is on the Rise, but We’ve Got Your Back

The World Health Organization has been clear that Polio cases are on the rise, and that “risk of international spread of poliovirus remains a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).” So, depending on your facility needs, finding a disinfectant that has the Poliovirus claim may be important.

The global drive to wipe out the virus had driven the number of polio cases down from 300,000 in the late 1980s to just 417 cases last year, and the World Health Organization had set a goal of wiping out polio by 2018. However, polio has cropped up in 10 countries this year, alongside concerns that the virus could be on the rise.  

We understand that you and your staff may have concerns regarding Polio. At Quip Laboratories, we pride ourselves on creating products that alleviate facility hygiene concerns and put you, and your staff, at ease. So if you maintain a facility that you feel is at risk, feel free to fill out our contact forms on our main navigation or head to our Pathogen page for Poliovirus Type 1.
