Czy woda w basenie może przenosić koronawirusa? Czy chlor lub ozon zabija koronawirusa?

Piotr Gryglas: Jeżeli jest on na zewnątrz, w powietrzu, w wodzie, na powierzchniach to tak, proste środki dezynfekcyjne zabijają wirusa. Od alkoholu po mydło, wszystkie środki, które rozpuszczają i wnikają do jego osłonki, mogą go dezaktywować. Natomiast (…) pacjenci, czy widzowie zadają pytania, czy płukanie jamy ustnej alkoholem czy spirytusem będzie przynosiło efekt korzystny? Oczywiście nie. Może tylko uszkodzić błony śluzowe i otworzyć drogę dla drobnoustrojów, również dla koronawirusa. Także takich rzeczy nie róbmy. Natomiast jeżeli już wirus jest w nas, to takie kąpiele w chlorze czy w alkoholu nie mają najmniejszego znaczenia.

Using ozone to kill novel coronavirus

Written by Zhou Muzhi

For more than 100 years, ozone, considered a killer of viruses in nature, has been widely used for disinfection, sterilization, deodorization, disintoxication, storage, and bleaching thanks to its strong oxidablity.

And because of this, ozone (O3) should be adopted as a weapon in the global fight against COVID-19. It has three following attributes.

Full coverage. Ozone created by ozone generators or electrostatic air purifiers can reach every corner of the environment, which can overcome the problem that ultraviolet sterilization can only go straight up and down, leaving some places unsterilized.

High detergency. Oxidizing bacteria and viruses is how ozone works, with no poisonous residue. On the contrary, the chemical disinfectant we use now is not only harmful to the human body, but also will cause secondary population of poisonous residue. During the current epidemic, the overuse of disinfecting water has been a serious problem that we should pay attention to.

Convenience. Ozone can be produced by simple equipment. The equipment, large or small, can be used for a single room, a large public space, or public transportation modes such as buses, high-speed railways, ships and airplanes.

Environmental surfaces may be contaminated with viruses and contribute to their transmission. Concerns have arisen in trying to control viruses because of an increasing incidence of viral infections. Ozone is considered to be a promising method to inactivate viruses on surfaces. In this investigation, the effects of ozone concentration, contact time, different capsid architecture of viruses, and relative humidity (RH) on inactivating viruses by ozone were evaluated. The authors observed that the survival fraction of viruses on surfaces decreased exponentially with increasing ozone dose. Viruses required ozone doses of 20-112 min(mg/m3) (contact time [min] multiplied by ozone concentration [mg/m3) for 90% inactivation and 47-223 min(mg/m3) for 99% inactivation. The ozone dose for 99% inactivation was two times higher than for 90% inactivation. The required ozone concentration at 85% RH was lower than at 55% RH. In summary, ozone should be an effective method for reducing the viral number between 1 and 3 logs on surfaces.

  • “Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus and since the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus is almost identical to that of the SARS coronavirus, it is relatively safe to say that it will also work on the new coronavirus, though it must be noted that there is only one current ongoing study in China at the Institute of Virology in Hubei with regards to this. Progress of that study has shown that it works. Additionally, there are more than 17 scientific studies that show Ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus.”
