The ZIKV (Zika virus) outbreak currently occurring in multiple countries, including regions within the Americas, has raised questions about the possible role our company could play in addressing the problem. Because the virus is spread primarily by the Aedes genus of mosquitos, Clorox is educating the public, in areas affected by Zika, on preventive measures, including steps they can take to eliminate mosquito breeding sites to reduce the potential for infection and how they can empty and clean containers with bleach to help eliminate the food source of mosquito larvae — efforts consistent with our company’s longtime commitment to public health.
