Celeste, based in Easton, Maryland makes a hospital-grade disinfectant product called Sani-Cide that meets CDC recommendations that call for treatment for Ebola with chemicals that are effective against Poliovirus or Rotovirus. Celeste has also helped out the struggle to get a lid on the Ebola outbreak by donating more than 100 cases of antibacterial hand soap.
Health care officials can note again and again that passing on the Ebola strain involves direct, intimate contact with an infected person and is indeed, difficult to catch. However, airlines are on the front line and in the public eye. Any spread from an infected country to other nation will have likely made its way aboard an aircraft in the commercial fleet. However, with products and procedures now in place, airlines have an effective means to make a stand and hold off the spread of the virus.
