WHETHER EFFICACY OF DISINFECTANTS SUCH AS SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE SPRAY USED OVER THE INDIVIDUALS THROUGH TUNNEL IS EFFECTIVE OR HARMFUL  FOR HUMAN BODY ??

            Large number of firms are manufacturing and selling “DISINFECTION TUNNEL” and same are available for sales online also.

            Basically nozzles inside the tunnel spray a mist of “sodium hypochlorite” solution on whoever passes through it.  While several of these disinfection tunnels came up at railway stations, farmer markets, police stations and other public places in the country which have also been shown by the media.

           Study revealed that even if a person is potentially exposed with the COVID-19 virus, spraying the external part of the body does not kill the virus that has entered your body.  Also there is no scientific evidence to suggest that they are effective even in disinfecting the outer clothing/body in an effective manner.

          Disinfection tunnels may create a false sense of security and people may be diverted from frequently hand washing, wearing masks, to avoid contracting the virus.   

         The use of Sodium Hypochlorite, which is sprayed on people  when they walk through a disinfectant tunnel, may have a harmful effect on them even if there is slight variation in its concentration.   

          Spraying of Sodium Hypochlorite is having harmful effect, if somebody’s eyes get exposed to it, they might experience irritation in the eyes. There can be a skin irritation.  If the mucus membrane is exposed to it, then people having chronic asthma and respiratory disorders, they may get bronchospasm.

       After such incidents, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Directorate General of Health Services have issued advisory for NOT spraying with Chemical Disinfectants on individual or group since same is physically and psychologically harmful.

        Under the above circumstances, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Directorate General of Health Services should issue instructed to stop manufacture of  such tunnels and also prior sanction should be taken from the Government  for uploading or giving publicity of such equipment on E-Commerce websites to avoid misleading of people for financial gain by such firms.
