While cleaning products are still scarce, and the CDC is cautioning us about homemade formulations, they do recommend the following ingredients are effective in deceiving rhinovirus--the virus that causes the common cold which is more difficult to destroy than corona viruses.
Isopropyl Alcohol: Alcohol solutions with at least 60% alcohol are effective against the corona virus on hard surfaces. First, wipe the surface with water and detergent. Apply the alcohol solution (do not dilute) and let it sit on the surface for at least 30 seconds to disinfect. Alcohol is generally safe for all surfaces but can discolor some plastics.
Hydrogen Peroxide: According to the CDC, household 3% hydrogen peroxide is effective in deactivating the rhinovirus within 6-8 minutes of exposure. Rhinovirus is more difficult to destroy than corona viruses, so hydrogen peroxide will break down the corona virus in less time. Pour it undiluted into a spray bottle and spray on the surface to be cleaned. Let it stay on the surface for at least 1 minute. Hydrogen peroxide is not corrosive, so it's okay to use on metal surfaces, but like bleach, it can discolor fabrics if you accidentally get it on your clothes. It’s great for getting into hard-to-reach crevices. You can pour it on the surface area, and you don’t have to wipe it off because it essentially decomposes into oxygen and water.

How to Use
Shake well and spray one or two sprays onto the surface that needs sanitizing. Leave to dry naturally.
This sanitizer's composition is a combination of White Vinegar, Ethyl Alcohol, Hydrogen Peroxide and Essential oils. Any of these ingredients separately are considered good agents to clean stone surfaces. White Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide and Alcohol are all recommended individually to clean granite, sandstone, slate and quartzite, but not for unsealed marble, limestone, travertine or onyx surfaces.
Hydrogen peroxide is safe to use on Granite but prolonged, repeated application over time could be damaging. This is especially so when using a pure solution of Hydrogen. It’s most likely less damaging as part of a formula.
As with anything used for the first time, a spot test is always recommended.
