Did anyone at the sell counter reminds people that antibacterial ingredient/agent has no effect on viruses?
Does this product contains more than 70% alcohol to kill viruses? Maybe someone who buys can confirm..

As already mentioned, it being a soap has a bearing (less that it kills the virus though, more that the lipids which help the virus to stay are removed, resulting in the removal of virus particles), and if you're going to be a pedant like the above, the 70% is for surface cleaners, 60% is adequate for hand sanitisation!
