Natrol COVID-19 News Section. Read Updates
Natrol and the Coronavirus Disease 2019As we are all seeing and are now inescapably being a part of, 2020 has started off as a difficult year full of health challenges for nearly all countries in the world. More recently it has brought economic and financial hardship to governments and individuals globally.
As of March 9th, the novel strain of Coronavirus—dubbed COVID-19—has infected nearly 115,000 people since being detected in China in December 2019, and has produced over 4,000 deaths for a mortality rate of 3.5%. The majority of victims are in China, Italy, Iran, and South Korea, but the virus is spreading globally very rapidly due to air travel, the relative ease of transmission between people, and the novel nature of it, which means the human immune system has not built up any antibodies to defend itself yet. So, we are all exposed and at risk in some form.
In the USA, 26 people have already died and there are over 564 confirmed cases as of today, as well as several Congress members in self-quarantine. It seems the number of infected patients may become great, and let’s hope that is not the case, but there is no vaccine or remedy in sight for the time being. Therefore taking preventative precautions, staying away from possible infection sites, and looking after yourself and your immune system are the best tactics.
At Natrol where health and safety are paramount, we take quality seriously. Natrol enjoys the highest testing certifications with NSF and USP accreditations for our products. We've also taken significant actions to prevent and protect ourselves including:
We continue learning and evolving our actions to combat this novel virus, but you can count on Natrol to meet and exceed all product quality requirements, and to ensure we continue making the best products for you – our valued customers.
