WWE’s Coronavirus Safety Measure Not Working, Spray Only Kills Bacteria

WWE has been implementing several safety measures to protect the Performance Center from the novel coronavirus. In order to ensure safe working conditions, the company has been using a spray to keep the training facility safe from the deadly virus.

During WWE’s latest investors’ call, Paul “Triple H” Levesque talked about the spray that kills the novel coronavirus and keeps it away for 90 to 120 days.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that the spray Triple H praised during the earnings call doesn’t work on the coronavirus – the product only kills bacteria.

“It’s something that kills bacteria, but this virus is not bacteria. It is something completely different. So I think he either misspoke or he was misled. There’s nobody that has done any experiments — like when he said that this thing will kill the virus for 90 to 120. I was like, ‘nobody knows this and if it was possible every hospital in the United States would have it. I don’t know if someone sold him a bill of goods.” 

It’s true that prevention is better than cure, and the fact that WWE is using a spray to kill bacteria is applaudable. However, the only problem is that the said product doesn’t actually target the deadly COVID-19.

The product description on Allied BioScience website doesn’t note that it kills viruses. The spray is simply a bane of microbes/bacteria.

“Protect your spaces with Allied BioScience. Our revolutionary always-on antimicrobial coatings inhibit recontamination for safer surfaces everywhere. Applied with electrostatic spray technology, coatings are transformed into super-fine, surface-seeking droplets creating a protective barrier that eliminates places where microbes can hide and keeps surfaces continuously protected for up to 90 days”.

The fact that the spray doesn’t shield the Performance Center against coronavirus should be a cause of concern for Vince McMahon. We hope that everyone working the TV tapings during these difficult times be safe and healthy.
