Production Inadequate To Protect World Against H1N1 Swine Flu Resurgence
World Health Organization Urges Build Up Of Essential Supplies For Fall Flu Season

(Johnstown, NY) – Unable to predict whether H1N1 swine flu will return during flu
season, or if it will be in a more severe form, scientists are urging countries and industry
to build up supplies of vaccines, antiviral drugs and other critical supplies. The World
Health Organization predicts there will still not be a sufficient supply to protect the
world against a pandemic. Cleaning and disinfecting products, which are more widely
available, can offer another line of defense says the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to disinfect surfaces
according to Spray Nine Corporation, manufacturer of the Spray Nine
Cleaner/Disinfectant.

Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization, says “The only
thing that can be said with certainty about influenza viruses is that they are entirely
unpredictable.” According to Chan, a mild first wave of H1N1 swine flu “…will give
countries and industry an opportunity to build up stocks of vaccines, antiviral drugs and
other essential supplies…global manufacturing capacity, though greatly increased, is still
not sufficient to produce enough antiviral medication and pandemic vaccines to protect
the entire world population in time.”

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services advises “Cleaning and disinfection
can reduce the number of viruses present on environmental surfaces, which can help to
minimize hand transfer of the virus…although pandemic influenza viruses may cause
serious disease, influenza viruses are among the least resistant microorganisms to
chemical disinfection.” The EPA issued the following statement regarding disinfecting
products: “EPA believes, based on current scientific evidence, that currently registered
Influenza A virus products will be effective against the 2009-H1N1 flu strain and other
Influenza A virus strains on hard, non-porous surfaces.” A list of these products is
available at http://www.epa.gov/oppad001/influenza-disinfectants.html

Spray Nine Corporation, manufacturer of the Spray Nine Cleaner/Disinfectant, which is
registered effective against Influenza A2 virus and Influenza A H3N2, explains there is a
right way and a wrong way to disinfect surfaces. According to Marketing Manager Cary
Zelich, the“3 P’s” of proper surface disinfection should be followed for successful
results. Information on the 3 P’s of disinfection is available on the Spray Nine website at
http://www.spraynine.com/swineflu or by calling 1-800-477-7299 ext 116.
