As we can see, sanitisers or disinfectants are getting more popular, due to the global pandemic particularly nano sprayers, which are now readily available at low prices.
It is used to protect against viruses as a disinfectant device. However, the Malaysian Ministry of Health’s Health Technology Assessment Section (MaHTAS) has stated that this device is ineffective in treating any viral infections inclusive of COVID-19.
Through a health forum in Malaysia, an individual trusted to be a doctor has explained that Nano Mist Spray is not an exceptional spray device to reduce the risk of covid-19 infections.
Despite the fact that Nano-Silver Sanitizer Spray contains nano-silver, which is the active element in the product, the official website of MaHTAS acknowledges that there is no evidence of its usefulness or safety in preventing the transmission of COVID-19.
Furthermore, there is a scarcity of evidence that this spray works. It is only effective in non-clinical settings for removing biofilms caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella Typhimurium.
As a result, clinical efficacy, safety, and cost-effectiveness of Nano-Silver Sanitizer Spray cannot be determined.
Instead, the doctor recommended using a hand sanitiser and taking precautions such as washing hands with soap and water.
Moreover, avoid touching the eyes, nose, or mouth with unclean hands, stay away from ill persons, especially those who display indications of COVID-19 infection, avoid crowded areas, follow government-mandated SOPs, and cover the mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
