    Actually, Covid-19 is not a airborne virus and is passed to people via touching infected surfaces or by droplets sprayed when sneezing. I'm not sure how this is going to work to disinfect?

    What good is this? Sounds like it will do more harm than good. So are we to breathe in disinfectant now? How about the animals? They say it isnt carried ftom animal to person.

    Some one has misunderstood. Disinfectants good at train compartments buses, buildings etc. Disinfectant via helicopter, where to use it?
