How ozone is being used to the reduce potency of COVID-19 by 90%
Researchers in Japan have successfully declined the potency of the COVID-19 virus by 90%, using ozone gas at a concentration of 0.05-.0.1%. The experiment used an ozone generator which was sealed in with a sample of the coronavirus to test its effectiveness on the virus.
When discussing the findings of the experiment, lead researcher on the project, Takayuki Murata, said: “Transmission of the novel coronavirus may be reduced by continuous, low-concentration ozone treatment, even in environments where people are present, using this kind of system”.
The recommended safe limit of ozone exposure for humans being 0.1%, the fact that researchers have now found aqueous ozone to have such a high impact on the virus in small volumes, without causing harm to people, is extremely welcoming news.
How can we utilise Ozone to reduce the impact of COVID-19?
The Tersano Lotus Pro cleaning system produces a powerful ozone-based solution called stabilised aqueous ozone (SAO™). The solution dispensed from the Tersano Lotus Pro has a maximum concentration 2.4ppm in its Aqueous solution but still off-gasses within the safe limits for occupational exposure. It cleans effectively for up to 24hrs after being dispensed, giving you plenty of time to clean and sanitise entire buildings using just one batch. Made from just water, electricity and oxygen, this innovative cleaner is accessible to the masses and the Tersano Lotus Pro can be purchased by anyone. As there are no harsh chemicals involved, the solution can also be used straightaway, without first undergoing COSHH training.
What is SAO™ technology?
Stabilised Aqueous Ozone (SAO™) is a powerful cleaning and sanitising solution which is proven to kill up to 99.999% of bacteria and certain viruses when sprayed onto surfaces. It remains active for up to 24 hours, before simply reverting back to water. It is made when, at the push of a button, the Lotus Pro unit infuses volts of electricity into the water, splitting the oxygen atoms in the water and converting them from O2 into O3. The O3 solution, also known as SAO, is then highly effective against dirt, bacteria, grime and many viruses, and can be used to clean and sanitise almost any surface.
How safe is SAO™?
SAO is a far safer solution than toxic chemicals. The absence of harmful chemicals, which are found in most alternative cleaners, means it is perfectly safe for use by anyone and there is no risk to the health of those using it. Once the water has been transformed into SAO, over the next 24 hours, the solution is deadly to germs yet 100% safe for people. Once the 24 hours is up, the liquid simply reverts back to regular water and can be poured away down a drain, with no risk to the environment. Because SAO uses just water and electricity, it is also ideal for organisations such as schools and care homes, where vulnerable people are in your care and the storage of toxic chemicals can be an additional worry.
