Inactivation and Environmental Stability of #Zika Virus
Working with Zika virus, a Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) pathogen in the European Union, except for the United Kingdom (where it is BSL-3), requires specific safety precautions. No inactivation data specific for Zika virus are available; consequently, disinfect...
