The United States Department of Health and Human Services has approved a batch of medical disinfection wipes to be used in travelers’ luggage.
The medical wipes are intended to help reduce the spread of respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses in travelers.
The department has approved the wipes, which are manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, for use on the U.S. mainland, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U:A, and U.K. The FDA said that the wipes would be used on all domestic flights, as well as those going to Europe.
The U. S. Department of Transportation has also approved the approval of the disinfection products.
The agency said that a total of 3 million bags of the wipes were manufactured, and that it would be distributed by the end of this year to all domestic airlines.
The manufacturer of the Glaxosawl wipes was not immediately available for comment.
The US Department of Homeland Security and the U-S.
Drug Enforcement Administration are working on a package of more than 2 million disposable masks to be distributed to travelers in response to the outbreak.
The DHS announced a delay in deploying the masks until at least the middle of January, as they are being tested in the U S. mainland.
The TSA said that all passengers traveling on flights to and from Europe must undergo an additional screening check in addition to that required of all travelers going to and fro Europe.
The announcement came after the CDC confirmed that 2,917 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the United States.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that the total number of confirmed cases in the US is up more than 70 percent from the first week of March.
A number of people who tested positive for coronaviruses during the outbreak have since been released from quarantine, including a Florida man who tested negative on Friday and another man who was released after the initial outbreak in California.
According to the CDC, the coronaviral pandemic has claimed the lives of more people in the continental United States than any other US state.
