Following the recent outbreak of Coronavirus in China and the extent to which this latest outbreak has been covered in the news and by statement issued by WHO, organisations associated with infection control will naturally begin to review their own cross infection control guidelines and portfolio of products employed in combating the threat of this disease to the UK. Whilst there is of course an elevated demand for these types of products, our company is taking steps to ensure that wherever possible, our stocking position and that of our distribution partners is not impacted by interruptions or unnatural high demand from external sources. For those institutions looking to review the options of products available, we offer the following advice: -
