O3 is an allotropic form of oxygen. Its molecules are made up of three oxygen atoms.
It has a characteristic pungent smell, the same that sometimes accompanies thunderstorms, due precisely to the active oxygen produced by lightning discharges. It is an essential molecule for life on Earth due to its ability to absorb ultraviolet light (the ozone layer present in the stratosphere protects the Earth from the harmful action of UV ultraviolet rays from the sun). Because of the atom "In addition" Ozone is an extremely reactive species and acts very selectively with the macromolecular components of bacterial cells, fungi, protozoa and viruses.
ENVIRONMENTAL DISINFECTION FOR COVID-19
Use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the prevention of exposure to risk biological health workers.
The importance of environmental disinfection was illustrated in a Singapore study, where viral RNA was detected on almost all surfaces tested (handles, switches, handrails, interior doors and windows, toilet, sink) in the isolation room. of a mildly symptomatic COVID-19 patient prior to routine cleansing, possibly airborne.
Viral RNA was not detected on similar surfaces in the rooms of two other symptomatic patients who had undergone routine cleaning (with sodium dichloroisocyanurate). It should also be noted that the detection of viral RNA does not necessarily indicate the presence of the infectious virus. Factors affecting the survival of these viruses on surfaces include: strain variation, titer, surface type, suspending medium, mode of deposition, temperature and relative humidity, and the method used to determine the viability of the virus. Environmental sampling has identified surface contamination with SARS-CoV and influenza viruses, although frequent use of molecular detection methods may not necessarily represent the presence of viable virus. Once contaminated by the environment, the hands can initiate self-inoculation into the mucous membranes of the nose, eyes or mouth. Viruses have been studied during their interaction with ozone. 99% of viruses have been inactivated causing damage to proteins of their envelope, which could prevent the virus from attaching to normal cells and set of potential advantages over other scavenger gases and liquid chemical solutions.
Ozone is a natural compound, it is easily generated on site by oxygen, and then turns into oxygen-ozone with a half-life of about 20 min (± 10 min depending on the environment).
As a gas it can penetrate all areas within a room, including cracks, fixtures, fabrics and under furniture surfaces, much more effectively than manual application of liquid spray.
