DOH warns against large-scale misting, spraying disinfectant

The Department of Health (DOH) warned the public on Friday against spraying or misting activities amid the threat of COVID-19.

“The DOH does not recommend spraying or misting. There is no evidence to support that spraying of surfaces or large-scale misting of areas, indoor or outdoor with disinfecting agents, kills the virus,” they said in an advisory.The Health department said that spraying “has an additional health and safety concern as it can cause any pathogens to be dispersed further from the direct application of a spray.”

Soak objects completely or disinfect surfaces directly to kill the virus,” the DOH said.
