Contributions from research and practice are intended to provide well-founded information during the current COVID-19 pandemic – for better implementing hygiene and infection prevention measures.


Enveloped viruses have a lipid membrane, such as. B. HBV, HCV, HIV and influenza viruses. The lipid membrane of enveloped viruses can be destroyed by alcohols such as ethanol or 2-propanol. Enveloped viruses are more unstable to disinfectants than non-enveloped viruses. Enveloped viruses can be killed with disinfectants that have a limited range of virucidal activity.

Bare viruses have no lipid membrane. Enveloped viruses include, for example, enteroviruses, noroviruses, rota and adenoviruses. Unwrapped viruses are more stable against disinfectants than enveloped viruses. They can be killed with disinfectants that have a virucidal spectrum of activity.
