Do RB hygiene products such as Dettol kill the novel coronavirus?

This is a new virus never seen before in humans so the virus is not yet available for testing with our products. We will conduct testing as soon as we can.

However, extensive laboratory tests have shown that, when used according to the label instructions, specific Dettol products have demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to this 2019 novel Coronavirus.

The World Health Organization specifically advises people to wash hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
