Coronavirus is just spreading like a wildfire in the jungle and no proper treatment to fight against the COVID-19 invented yet. People can be contracted with the virus just with the touch of your hands. It could be transferred either from the food, bacteria, dust, money or because of your smartphone too.

Our mobile phone is one of the most important things that should be kept clean and sanitized, hence, the discussions have been increased online on how to keep phone sanitized amid coronavirus outbreak.


Not only hand sanitizers are in demand but also PhoneSoap’s products are in demand as it helps to kill the germs on phone by bathing them in UV light. After the coronavirus, the sale of the PhoneSoap’s products have increased, co-founder Dan Barnes told CNN Business on March 10.

Even the company is taking pre-orders that will be shipped between April 15 and May 30, according to the website.

"[The coronavirus] isn't something we celebrate, but it has raised awareness that phones or hard surfaces can harbor bacteria for days and that it's important to clean them," Barnes said.

As our mobile devices carry pathogens that need to be clear. In such chaos, PhoneSoap will prove effective as it will help in killing the germs on phone, especially for those people who are contracted with the disease or whose immunity is weak.

PhoneSoap’s product also includes the PhoneSoap 3, a rectangular box with a UV light inside that fits all smartphones and most cases.

Besides, a gentle wipe with a product that has 70 percent isopropyl alcohol will also make your phone germs free.

Amid coronavirus fear, good hygiene is one of the preventive measures that can protect you from the COVID-19.
