The novel coronavirus was first reported to WHO on 31 December 2019 and has been under investigation ever since. Countries with confirmed infections include the U.S.A., Canada, France, Australia, Japan, South Korea and Nepal.

It is free of alcohol and other potentially toxic chemicals.

It has also been approved by the Food and Safety Authority of New Zealand, and the New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority ("EPA"). It is also approved by the United States Pharmacopeia ("USP") and has undergone successful USP-51 testing as a disinfectant.

We plan to sell it in all infected ASEAN countries," he said.

Dr Arthur Martin, the President of GICC LLC ( said, "The Path-Away(R) formula has been proven in world-renowned laboratories including those working with WHO, to be able to kill over 170 deadly pathogens including previously existing forms of coronaviruses. Path-Away(R) is currently undergoing testing on the newly emerged coronavirus designated as the "Wuhan Virus."Dr Martin is a globally respected scientist and a member of the WHO's Stop Tuberculosis ("T.B.").
