Eliminating Norovirus on Cruise Ships
Norovirus is a contagious virus that has become increasingly common on cruise ships. The virus can be spread in a variety of ways, including contact with infected passengers or crew, contaminated food or water, or by simply touching contaminated surfaces. The virus itself causes digestive tract inflammation, leading to acute stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. In 2016 alone, Norovirus led to nearly one thousand deaths in the United States. Norovirus is now the leading cause of acute gastroenteritis in the United States with approximately twenty million new cases diagnosed every year. PERFORMACIDE® not only kills the Norovirus, but also a host of other germs, viruses, bacteria, as well as mold and mildew.
Preventing Norovirus in Leisure Resorts
Whether it’s a day spa, golf course, hotel, motel or bed and breakfast inn, there is always a possibility that someone who is infected with Norovirus has been at the facility. If the facility is found to be the source of this highly contagious virus, the owner or company could be found responsible for all of their infected guests’ medical bills, lost wages and even pain and suffering of the those who contracted Norovirus. It’s better to protect the guests and staff from Norovirus rather than pay afterwards. Believe it or not, it isn’t that difficult to disinfect the hard surfaces in the building from Norovirus. PERFORMACIDE® is a hospital grade product that kills Norovirus.
