Using Commerical Ozone to Combat Covid-19

The scientific/medical community is learning more and more about Covid-19 every day.  Using high-grade commercial Ozone technology and applications can be highly effective at destroying Covid-19.  Although ozone is used in different ways to treat a broad range of issues. I will limit these comments to specifically discuss the role high-grade commercial ozone can play in addressing Covid-19.

 

Viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within the host cell. The proper amount of ozone destroys viruses by diffusing, through the protein coat, into the nucleic acid core, targeting and damaging the viral RNA along with its capsid protein shell.  Viruses have no protection against the oxidative stress produced by certain commercial grade ozone equipment. 

 

Because Covid-19 is a novel virus there have been no head to head studies done, however, high concentrations of ozone were used during the SARS epidemic and proved 99.22% effective at killing the virus and the Covid-19 virus has a genome sequence that is 80-90% similar to SARS.  More than 17 studies have been completed demonstrating commercial-grade Ozone's effectiveness on SARS.

In light of Covid-19, we have received calls from property managers (PM) in the Tampa Bay area requesting ozone treatment at properties with vacating Covid-19 tenants, (both asymptomatic and symptomatic) as well as suspected cases.  Some have been initiated by the PM because they had prior knowledge of the tenants' Covid-19 condition and in other cases, the new tenant made the inquiry of the PM themselves. This gives the tenant, owners and PM peace of mind.  I should state, that presently these calls appear to be the exception, not the rule, as Covid-19 continues to persist and impact our daily business lives and the lives of our loved ones.   

Wishing you and yours the very best during these challenging times.
