The advent of coronavirus created a huge interest in Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) as a disinfectant product to see if it could be used in a broader preventive and protective strategy to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
For several years, many countries around the world have reaped the benefits that HOCL provides to healthcare; food processing and manufacture; water treatment; and water recycling, together with the improved hygiene standards it offers in the cleaning and household sector.
Outside the UK, the healthcare sector has used HOCL to help people breathe who have received COVID-19: a dying patient is reported to have recovered from pneumonia when HOCL was used to facilitate breathing.
HOCL is used for wound care applications such as wounds, for patients who have suffered from an MRSA infection or for diabetic skin ulcers. Wounds always heal faster when treated with HOCL, as it prevents biofilm from infecting the wound and fights any airborne intruders who try to fill the wound.
