What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


The current Coronavirus pandemic has made us all extremely aware of our actions and how they may be increasing our risk of getting the virus. In fact, it’s probably in a way that’s never been seen before, at least not in most of our lifetimes. And while it’s true that the virus poses greater risks for older people, the reality is that we all have to do our best to avoid it in order to protect those people. CVS is one of the more reputable drug store chains in America, and CVS hand sanitizer is quick and effective way to prevent contact transmission of the Coronavirus.

Contact transmission is one of the two primary ways people can be exposed to the virus, and the other being exposure - which primarily means having the virus enter your mouth, nose, or eyes due to be in the proximity of carrying the virus. Keep in mind that people can be asymptomatic carriers, meaning they don’t have symptoms (yet) and are unaware they have the virus as a result.

Now of course CVS hand sanitizer will not do anything to counter exposure transmission risk factors, but it is an excellent means of preventing contact transmission. The high alcohol content in CVS brand hand sanitizer works to kills germs, virus, and bacteria that may not be visible but still present on surfaces.

It’s commonly sold in both household and personal dispenser sizes, and of course the best place to buy CVS hand sanitizer is at your local CVS drug store.

Clean Hands Peace of Mind

The risk with touching surfaces for Coronavirus infection isn’t related to the actual touching. The virus is not able to enter the body through the skin, but the contact risk for Coronavirus actually involves the individual then inadvertently touching their face and putting the virus close to their mouth, nose, or eyes.

And if you need any confirmation of how possible that is, consider that most humans touch their face a couple of thousand times a day at least! it’s for that reason that using CVS hand sanitizer frequently while you’re out in public is such a good idea during this time. It’s not the only effective type of product, but CVS brand hand sanitizer is regularly available and relatively inexpensive.

Being one of the more well known brands, CVS hand sanitizer is based on the same formula you’ll find with all instant sanitizer gels or wipes are - a very high alcohol content of around 65% and usually consisting of isopropyl alcohol, ethanol (ethyl alcohol) or n-propanol.

Use CVS brand hand sanitizer every time you’ve come into contact with a surface that will commonly be touched by the hands of many others during the course of a day - door handles, gas pumps, ATM machines, elevator buttons, etc. There’s many different examples we could list, but in general just always be very proactive in sanitizing your hands during this time.
