A new, US EPA registered disinfectant with NATO Stock Number* (NSN) is now available to help combat the spread of Avian Influenza A (H5N1), also known as Bird Flu or Avian Cholera. Avian Influenza is spreading  across the USA and Canada through  populations of wild birds, sea birds, poultry farms and migratory birds. To reduce the risk of HPAI H5N1 transmission, surfaces in contact with birds suspected or confirmed of carrying Avian Influenza A should be disinfected using a hospital grade disinfectant solution of 958 mg/L (ppm). Disinfectant Avian Influenza.

Global Hydration is pleased to announce immediate availability of a US EPA registered, effervescent tablet with NATO Stock Number* (NSN) with this capability, ideal for use in commercial or military settings.
