Today was the highest new infection rate Record at 106,000 new infections in the past 24 hors with 5 million cases world wide .
my thoughts are its not over here yet and the shops are full of people and restrictions are ending and people have gone back to their old habits . I think its too early and we are jumping the gun . 106K cases in one day is a huge amount of people. ..
Keep up the Metho and distance !!! A second wave may happen as many are warning .

You will note that the big containers of Metho disappeared from the shelves months ago. There was comment that Ivermectin killed it. I'm Ok for that & its already registered for head lice.

However, the problem is that our bureaucracy is loath to introduce anything that works.

What is the % of Alcohol in metho ?

Diggers brand metho states approx 95% ethanol and approx 5% demineralised water.

They vary a bit depending on brands, But you must add 20% water for it to work as a hand sanitiser
Diggers is fine ,,Just cant buy it over the counter here at the moment so I'm using Wattyl
But you can buy Metho online now too /
Rubbing Alcohol is always close 100 percent, But you don't need it as you must dilute it anyway by adding 20 % water
