Mandom Alcohol Sprays claim to eliminate 99.99% of bacteria. Are they effective against COVID-19?

Mandom Alcohol Sprays are products containing alcohol (ethanol), and by spraying them on surfaces and then wiping them off, you can easily eliminate bacteria from objects in your environment like tables and door knobs. (When using these products on eating or cooking utensils, please rinse them with water before use.) These products have been confirmed to eliminate 99.99% of specific bacteria* under fixed use conditions, but their effects on COVID-19 have not been verified. Nevertheless, these products have an ethanol concentration likely to have a certain degree of effectiveness against COVID-19, according to reports. Therefore although they are not pharmaceutical or quasi-pharmaceutical products, they can be used as a substitute for ethanol in hand disinfection.
*This does not mean that these products eliminate all types of bacteria.
