Hello. Thank for the concern to healthcaremagic. The level of disinfectant which makes you unbearable to present at the site is dangerous, usually some amount of bleach always release some chlorine. But it won't harm us much.
If you have to ask me anything you can contact me. Dr Arun Tank. Infectious disease specialist. Thank you.
