Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has revealed that the country is working with a US based inventor to introduce a disinfectant that can kill the coronavirus.
“I’ve told Parliament that a spray/ hand-wash, which instantly kills the Corona virus has been discovered. The American inventor, Prof. Sarfaraz K. Niaz, who was here at the weekend, has given the patent free of charge to Uganda,” Kadaga said on Monday.
She added, “He has teamed up with a Ugandan biochemist, Mathias Magoola, of DEI Group in Luzira, a city suburb. The product goes on sale next week.”
DEI Group of Industries announced that it is launching a first of its kind hand and surface sanitizer that is guaranteed to remove all viruses including the Wuhan COVID-19, the Corona Virus.
DEI has licensed this product from a US company with its patent rights in Uganda. The product, CovaNil™, is fully compliant with European Standard Compliant EN 14476:2013 + A2 2019 and the US FDA 21 CFR Part 310 for safety and efficacy.
CovaNil™ is the first product on the market that will assure that the Corona virus does not spread in Uganda; the high efficacy of CovaNil™ comes from its proprietary and patented composition in a liquid form rather than a gel, to allow quick wetting of skin, the highest percentage of alcohol, as a mixture of different types of alcohols, as allowed by the FDA for skin use, a quaternary disinfectant that has a an electrical charge that allows it to attach to Corona virus, and a natural antivirus compound that acts as an emollient to prevent the skin from drying.
There are no competitors to CovaNil™ with its claim of 100% guaranteed killing of all viruses including the Corona virus instantly upon application. We are making this product available widely throughout Uganda to make sure that we are able control the spread of Corona virus, taking a proactive approach to manage this global crisis.
This proprietary, patented formulation was donated by its inventor Prof. Sarfaraz K. Niazi in a meeting with President General Museveni on 13th March at the State House.
