Does hand sanitizer kill coronavirus? How it works and when you should use it?
Hand sanitizers are a convenient way to clean your hands when soap and water aren't available. Often used on the go, hand sanitizers contain ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol or both to kill bacteria and viruses on your hands. Alcohols have long been known to kill germs by denaturing the protective outer proteins of microbes and dissolving their membranes.
The CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, as sanitizers with lower concentrations of alcohol aren't as effective at killing germs. Even up to 90% alcohol is preferable to ensure that hand sanitizer completely kills germs rather than just reducing their growth on your hands.
