Supporting Data & Articles:
- According to the Cleveland Clinic, the virus can live on glass for up to 5 days, wood up to 4 days, and plastic and stainless steel for up to 3 days. Disinfection of these surfaces is an important step to controlling spread.
- Use an ozonator (medical device certified by PMDA: ozone generator) installed in the ozone-proof hermetic box. The ozone concentration in the ozone-proof hermetic box is controlled and maintained from 1.0 to 6.0 ppm. The amount of ozone exposure is set by the CT Value.
- The findings from this study confirm that a high concentration of ozone at 55 minutes is capable of a 4-log (99.99%) kill on the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This type of treatment, with highly concentrated ozone for a longer period of time, is called shock treatment.
