LOS ANGELES - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released an expanded list of nearly 200 products registered for use to kill COVID-19, the novel coronavirus that originated in China and has now spread widely in countries around the world.

Coronavirus: Symptoms, testing and how to prepare amid growing COVID-19 outbreak

What is coronavirus?

From how it spreads to where it originated, here's a look at everything you need to know about the deadly contagion.

The original list, released on March 3, included dozens of household antimicrobial cleaners that the EPA said will work to disinfect the virus. Many of the products were cleaning solutions for surfaces. On March 13, the agency released an expanded list that included 40 products that recently passed the EPA's expedited review process.

The EPA had previously advised that common cleaning products like Lysol and Clorox, which are marketed as effective against coronaviruses, would likely get rid of the new virus on surfaces, but it had not officially approved any products specific use on COVID-19.

Among the cleaning products included in the EPA's list are:

  • Clorox Multi Surface Cleaner + Bleach
  • Clorox Disinfection Bathroom Cleaner
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Lysol Clean & Fresh Multi-Surface Cleaner
  • Lysol Disinfectant Max Cover Mist
  • Purell Professional Surface Disinfectant Wipes

The EPA also included the time a surface should remain wet with each cleaner to be effective in the elimination of the novel coronavirus. Many of the products included in the EPA's list required 10 minutes of contact time to rid surfaces of COVID-19.

The novel coronavirus strain responsible for the recent deadly global outbreak is more contagious than SARS and MERS, according to a study from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

RELATED: COVID-19 more contagious than SARS or MERS, can live on surfaces for up to 9 days, studies say

COVID-19 is known to spread mainly from person-to-person contact through sneezing and coughing, but a separate study published in The Journal of Hospital Infection found that the virus may be able to live on surfaces like metal, glass or plastic for up to nine days. 

Increased temperatures of 30 or 40 degrees Celsius were found to reduce the duration of how long the virus persisted. Household cleaning products such as bleach were found to be effective at killing the virus on surfaces within a minute, according to the study.

VERIFY: Generic disinfectants as effective as name brands, if this number is on label

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, wipes and disinfectant spray are household workplace staples. But, depending on the brand, they vary considerably in price, and you'll often find the limited-supply name brands marked up for re-sale on third-party sites.

Good Morning Show viewer Pearl Gardner asked Meghann Mollerus to VERIFY, "Disinfectant Lysol spray and Lysol or Clorox wipes -- are they better for use than store brands?"

Wake Forest Baptist Health infectious disease expert, Dr. Chris Ohl, said, "For most purposes, any of the household disinfectants are sufficient, whether they are brand name or generic. Shoppers should look to buy products with an EPA registration number on the label."

He further explained, "If you need to disinfect for a non-fabric surface and don't have an EPA-registered disinfectant, you can use 10% household bleach (1 oz. bleach in 10 oz. water) as an alternative, but it may fade colors if used repeatedly."

Ohl mentioned EPA registration, which is a designation that means scientists have evaluated the ingredients in a product for health hazards. To know whether a disinfectant is EPA-registered, look very closely at the label for a series of numbers separated by hyphens (for example, EPA REG. No. 11525-30-41348). It might be in tiny fine print at the bottom. 

If you don't want to strain your eyes at the store, there is an easier way to tell whether a product is EPA-registered. Use the EPA's pesticide product and label system search page. Type in the registration number or product name and see all of the registered products associated with that brand. Note several products might have the same first seven digits, meaning the EPA considers them equivalent products. 

Quick searches of Lysol and Great Value bring up all of the EPA-registered products for those brands, including wipes and disinfectant sprays. They both also appear on the EPA's list of disinfectant products that can fight COVID-19.

Yes, store-brand disinfectants can be just as effective and safe as their name-brand equivalents. The EPA suggests following the label directions and the contact time, which is the amount of time the surface should be visibly wet with the product, so it can take effect.

What not to buy at the Dollar Store

What Not to Buy at the Dollar Store

I live way too close to The Dollar Store

I end up spending a lot of time there

Which means I also tend to spend a lot of money there too.

I've bought a few things that have been worth a dollar.

And I've bought a few things that are totally not worth a dollar.

So stroll with me through the aisles and I will tell you all those things you should buy

and all those things you should avoid.

Tissue Paper-Buy it at the Dollar Store

It's so much cheaper at The Dollar Store and works great in those 

recycled gift bags we all have laying around.

Scotch Tape-Buy it at the Dollar Store

Is it just me or does your house go through tape like it's going out of style?

 Thumb Tacks-Buy it at the Dollar Store

You probably don't need these every day, but I did do a project recently and wish I knew they had them at The Dollar Store because I paid too much.

Furniture Polish and Window Cleaner: Buy it at the Dollar Tree

Both things I use often, both things worth picking up
Windex does not corner the market on window cleaner and Pledge doesn't either

Estracell sponges-DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

While they may look like the scotch brite sponges, they are not the same.
 Don't waste your money buy these instead.  You will be glad that you did!

Sun dishwashing liquid: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

This stuff is so watered down that it's cheaper to buy the name brand

Dawn makes a far more superior product and you can use it for more than just dishes.

Stor-it sandwich bags: Buy it at the Dollar Store

We don't use a lot of these baggies (I use my reusable ones instead)
but when I do need them, they do the job


I'm pretty sure potted meat is never a good idea

also, any "meat" at The Dollar Store-gross!

Pretzels: Buy it at the Dollar Store

These are great for lunches and so much cheaper than at the grocery store

Kids Shampoo: Buy it a the Dollar Store

If you have kids that wash themselves you know how much shampoo you go through.

Shower Curtain: Buy it at the Dollar Store

Now I'm not saying you should use just this shower curtain in your bathroom,

but under your fancy shower curtain, this one for $1 is perfect. 

Washcloths and Towels: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

So thin and so not worth it

These washcloths are about the same price and are far superior.

Extra Healing Lotion: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

It may look like Vaseline's healing lotion, but it is not even close.

Find a sale and buy the real deal

This is my favorite hand lotion right now.

Bobby pins: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

Honestly, didn't know anyone could screw up bobby pins

but they did.

Don't bother

These don't cost much more and work far better in my opinion.

Cotton Swabs: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

Stick with Q-tips

These guys bend before you even stick 'em in your ear.

It's like they are scared or something.

Pregnancy Test: Buy it at the Dollar Store

Who knew?

Seriously, the best $1 deal in the store

Compare them with other brands here
**updated**see this follow up post Should you Buy a Dollar Store Pregnancy Test

After years of buying pregnancy tests at the dollar store, WalMart has come up with a pregnancy test of their own and it's less than a buck!

Glue Pens-Buy it at the Dollar Store

I always peruse the craft aisle you never know what you will find

I know I've bought these at Michael's before for WAY more!

Colored Pencils: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

These are awful! They won't sharpen and they get dull in a nanosecond

My daughter loves the Crayola twistables instead.

Crayons: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

There is something to be said for Crayola.  They have crayons figured out.

These are just waxy and yuck.

Crayola crayons are cheaper than the 8 or 10 in this pack and are far better!

Dough Pate: DO NOT BUY IT at the Dollar Store

It's called Pate...seriously...skip it.

It's not play doh

and yes, I do know that Pate is a French word for paste or dough.
It's still not the same

Bubbles: Buy it at the Dollar Store

I buy these by the armful during the summer

Cheap, big and full of fun

So what dollar store items did I miss?

Good or bad I want to know!

The Truth About Dollar Tree's $1 Cleaner

Bargain hunters at Dollar Tree and Dollar General know that some items are worth far more than the $1 price tag. LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner sets big expectations with its name, but according to many of its users, it really is totally awesome. The bottle claims the cleaner is effective for removing everything from blood, to gum, to hair dye, and it can be found both at Dollar Tree and Dollar General. For the most part, LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner seems just as good as its fans claim — that is, if you don't have a sensitive nose.

Dollar Tree's website attracted plenty of five star reviews, including from users who claim the cleaner worked on "dirty farm clothes," and oily engines. If you want to watch the cleaner in action, there are dozens of YouTube videos where users try Totally Awesome on their own tough stains. Watching dirt drip off DT's tires after just a few sprays is pretty satisfying. If you're skeptical that the cleaner works on fabric, watch YouTuber 505BOSE use a scrub brush to get stains out of car seats. While the stains required a little more scrubbing work, the final results are impressive, and most of the visible stains wipe right off.

Construction is underway for a building that will house a Dollar General store in the town of Vestal.

The store will be located at 2301 Vestal Parkway West in the Ross Corners section of the town. The site is just east of Arlington Avenue.

According to Dollar General, the store is slated to open late in the summer. It's expected to employ between six and ten people.

The Vestal Parkway location is less than three miles from a Dollar General store on Route 434 in Apalachin. That store opened about three years ago.

Previously: Store Planned Adjacent to Vestal Residential Neighborhood

In early 2018, Dollar General was planning to open a store on West Sheedy Road in Vestal but that project was dropped.

Dollar General is planning to open more than 1,000 stores across the United States this year. The company already operates several store in Broome and Tioga counties.
