Abstract

Prevention and therapy of emerging and re-emerging viral diseases may be inefficient due the inavailability of specific vaccines, active chemotherapic drugs, acceptable pesticides, and vector control measures. To reduce contact spreading of viral infections, some biocides, as chlorine compounds or phenolic compounds, associated with detergents, may assume a leading position as safe substances with antiviral properties for the environmental decontamination. Detailed instructions on their use may be introduced in future guidelines related to emerging and re-emerging viral diseases.
