Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019, and then spread rapidly all over the world. Although the main transmission route of the pandemic is through the transfer of respiratory droplets among peo-ple, it is known that the virus can survive for days on contact surfaces and is also transmitted from body parts and contaminated surfaces. Therefore, disinfectants have increasingly become a part of daily use. However, prolonged exposure to these chemical agents at high concentrations may cause significant toxic effects that threaten human health and the environment. Therefore, it is of great importance to inform the public about the correct use of disinfectants and possible toxic effects. Informing the healthcare personnel and public about the toxic effects of disinfectants has of great importance for protecting public health. Precautions should be taken against the potential health hazards of disinfectants when used separately or in combination. In this review, the possible toxic effects of disinfectants that are frequently used during COVID-19 pandemic will be discussed. © 2021, Hacettepe University, Faculty of Pharmacy. All rights reserved.
