ISSA Produces Special Coronavirus Webinar as WHO Declares Pandemic


NORTHBROOK, IL—March 12, 2020—The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on March 11, solidifying the current crisis as a focus for the global cleaning industry.

“We have never before seen a pandemic sparked by a coronavirus. And we have never before seen a pandemic that can be controlled at the same time,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Wednesday. CNN reports  there are 118,000 cases as of Wednesday night, with more than 4,000 deaths, and the virus has directly impacted every continent except for Antarctica.

On Wednesday, the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a division of ISSA, produced a critical webinar (part one of a two-part series) entitled “How to Clean and Disinfect for the Coronavirus.” Targeted specifically for the global cleaning industry, it outlines specific steps to follow in response to this crisis.

Part two of the series will take place Friday, March 13, at 12 pm EST and is dedicated to answering many of the 60 questions received during the first webinar.

The webinar recording is available to all members of ISSA. If you are an ISSA member, register for the webinar to obtain the recording. If you are not an ISSA member, join today and then obtain the recording and also receive all the benefits of ISSA membership.
