Covid-19. Deposon recommends ozone for environmental disinfection
How do I disinfect my house, my car, my workplace, my skin?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions during the current coronavirus pandemic. The good news, however, is that covid-19 is a virus that has little resistance and can be removed from the surface of ordinary commercial products. Its lipid coating seems to indicate that it prefers fat surfaces (so special disinfection of the phone is required). Therefore, the cleaner the surface, the shorter the time that the virus remains active on it, because the virus only spreads when it is suspended in the air or in contact with our mucous membranes (especially nose, mouth, eyes), which means that the spread of the virus can be avoided in most cases by maintaining healthy habits of action.
The main preventive measures that we should take can be summarized as the following three suggestions, which we will elaborate further
Keep the surfaces we are in contact with clean and disinfected as much as possible
Do not expose yourself to the environment where the virus may be suspended, if necessary, use appropriate protective measures (gloves, masks...)
Expand our hygiene habits.
There is a very related disinfectant to protect the environment we breathe in: ozone.
The ability of ozone to kill Covid-19 is still under study, but its activity in another coronavirus with very similar structure has been confirmed. In fact, the antiviral activity of ozone has been confirmed in two of the most common viruses: one is a virus with lipid coating, in which ozone can destroy the outer layer and inactivate the virus; the other is the virus without lipid coating, whose nucleic acid is covered by protein or capsid, and these proteins or capsids will also be directly attacked by ozone These viruses have no protection against oxidants. Covid-19 is a lipid coated virus.
