Monkeypox Illustrates Need For Constant Infection Control

Published On: August 18th, 2022


Since the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in early 2020, healthcare systems around the world have faced numerous additional widespread infection threats. Whether these are new waves of COVID variants or the recent spread of monkeypox, they illustrate the need for hospitals and long-term care facilities to be more diligent than ever before in constant, comprehensive disinfecting and other infection control measures. The solutions offered by PCT Corp are a great resource for the healthcare industry as it anticipates the next national or global infection threat at the same time it also seeks to streamline environmental services operations.


Infection control through the use of disinfecting, sanitizing, and cleaning solutions has always been a critical activity at facilities providing medical care. However, in recent years the importance of that activity has been highlighted even further, not only through the duration of the initial COVID-19 pandemic stage but also in the face of multiple COVID variants, newly spreading threats such as monkeypox, and the unknown level of risk of new diseases arising and spreading throughout the world in the coming years.

These infection threats make it more critical than ever before that a hospital or other healthcare facility have a disinfecting protocol in place that is powerful, thorough, strictly maintained, and that does not pose ancillary health risks to the employees, patients, visitors, and support staff that are present in a facility every day. This protocol is the first line of defense against the threat of a sick patient infecting others in the environment, as it has the potential to eradicate pathogen cells and discourage their growth on external surfaces before they are able to reach a new host.

PCT Corp, based in South Carolina, provides hospital grade disinfectant that meets all of these criteria while also offering important advantages over the chemical based products that many facilities use to prevent infection. As a solution based on hypochlorous acid (HOCl), HydrolyteⓇ is extremely effective against bacteria and viruses, yet avoids many of the secondary risks that competing disinfecting solutions pose to the human respiratory system. Most importantly, HydrolyteⓇ produces no airborne volatile organic compounds, which have been linked to serious respiratory conditions after prolonged exposure to them, as with patients and employees that spend extended amounts of time in a hospital setting.

While each unfamiliar virus that appears on the horizon creates the necessity for extended research and treatment development, maintaining a robust infection control regimen is the best way for a hospital, medical practice, or long-term care facility to ensure that it is ready for whatever comes next. The healthy environment produced by these protocols not only discourages the propagation of new viruses that may appear, but also minimizes the infection threat from familiar yet serious pathogens, including salmonella, C. diff, MRSA, tuberculosis, and others.
