As the coronavirus outbreak expands globally, reports of widespread use of disinfectant tunnels and disinfectant spraying of the population to address the pandemic are raising concern. There is a lack of evidence demonstrating that these practices are safe and effective. Further, their
use may create a false sense of security, and pose hazards for the community.
Health Care Without Harm recommends against the use of disinfection tunnels and disinfectant spraying of the general population.
