WHO-2019-nCoV-IPC - Water, sanitation, hygiene, and waste management for the COVID-19 virus
EN - The WHO informs that in order to sanitize surface areas you can use a mixture of 0,5% of bleach (sodium hypochlorite) in water. Bleach bottles for household use indicate the concentration percentage in their labels - a bottle from Continente supermarket, for instance, indicates 5% - therefore to use this product to sanitize an area you need to dissolve it in water - one measuring cup of bleach for nine measuring cups of water will provide you with a solution containing 0,5% bleach. Be extremely careful when handling bleach with a 5% concentration. It can burn the skin. If it spills drops to the skin or eyes wash them immediately with abundant water for two minutes.

PT - Para desinfectar as superfícies a OMS recomenda uma solução (mistura) de 0,5% de lixívia (hipoclorito de sódio) em água. As embalagens de lixívia para uso doméstico indicam a concentração em % no rótulo - num exemplo do Continente vimos a indicação de 5% - daí que para conseguir ter uma concentração para desinfetar as superfícies com esse produto a 5% é preciso diluir com mais àgua: a uma medida de lixívia a 5% juntar 9 medidas de água para ter uma solução a 0,5%. Cuidado com a lixívia, em concentrações de 5% ou mais causa queimaduras na pele. Se pingos forem para a pele ou os olhos lave abundantemente com água durante 2 minutos.
