NitroPep and COVID-19

Based on information from the World Health Organization (WHO), the use of chlorhexidine as an antimicrobial agent clearly exhibits some efficacy to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. NitroPep has independently assessed laboratory data that shows categorically that their covalently-bonded chlorhexidine-based antimicrobial coating kills gram-negative, gram-positive bacteria and fungi.  While research is currently being planned on the effectiveness of our NitroPep-coated surfaces against coronaviruses, we currently have no available test data to show  efficacy of NitroPep chlorhexidine-coated surfaces against SARS-CoV-2 and therefore assumptions on its efficacy are in accordance with WHO guidelines:
