Ozone & Coronavirus

Ozone & Coronavirus

Typically, viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules that multiply only within the host cell. The new coronavirus is considered an “enveloped virus.” Enveloped viruses are usually more sensitive to physico-chemical challenges. In past studies, 99% of viruses have been damaged or destroyed after 30 seconds of exposure to ozone.  Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA. At higher concentrations, ozone destroys the exterior protein shell by oxidation. 

When disinfecting large areas, ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus.  Because the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is almost identical, it is somewhat safe to believe that it will also work on the new coronavirus.  Currently, there are more than 17 scientific studies that prove ozone gas can destroy the SARS coronavirus.

NOTICE: Please be aware, we cannot legally claim ozone will kill 2019-nCoV. However, given the proven track record of ozone's ability to kill viruses that are very similar, including the SARS corona virus, chances are pretty high that ozone will still work just as effectively. The same can be said for any other disinfectant such as bleach, disinfecting wipes, hand santizers etc. There are currently no scientific studies that have proven 2019-nCoV are killed by these products.


Technical Info

Our ozone machines are capable of producing at least 6000 mg/hr of ozone per hour. In a average size household room, the concentration of ozone produced by our machines is at least 22ppm.
