HIV Plus magazine in a recent article points out that according to the CDC, people on medication who are virally suppressed and have adequate immune responses are not at a higher risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. However, factors common in some people living with HIV, in particular co-morbidities, do greatly increase the risk of poorer outcomes.
"Well thought-out plans for protecting vulnerable populations need to be proposed and carried out through state and federal recommendations and mandates," stated Dr. Roscoe Moore, former Assistant Surgeon General, Board Member of the Global Virus Network of The Institute of Human Virology and member of the Germinator Scientific Advisory Board
Regular cleaning of places people living with HIV frequent will no longer be sufficient in protecting those most vulnerable to COVID-19. Effective sanitizing and disinfecting services will be required. These service providers will need to adapt new procedures that, through remediation procedures, will lessen the possibility of people becoming infected. Employing effective remediation of surfaces exposed to COVID-19 should be a priority along with other prevention methods.
One currently available method uses hypochlorous acid, this is a very powerful hospital grade disinfectant and sanitizer. It's a safe and non-toxic solution that is used medically for wound care. It's scientifically proven effective against germs, viruses and bacteria. A second step ensures extended protection. The second step is the application of the Shield, a microbial barrier that when properly maintained, as provin in a major university study, helps protect surfaces for an extended period of time. This method, performed by Germinator Mobile Sanitizing and Disinfection, should be evaluated for use at AIDS service organizations and other public spaces frequented by at higher risk individuals.
