Ozone gas, also known as life-saving gas, can be used to disinfect surfaces. An Israeli study has found that it can disinfect surfaces by contamination by the corona.
The study, published in the journal Environmental Chemistry Letters, states that surfaces can be cleaned after low exposure to low concentrations of ozone gas. The study noted that the advantage of gas over liquid disinfectants such as alcohol and bleach is the ability to treat the entire room, including hard-to-reach locations.
According to the researchers, the method incorporates inexpensive and readily available technology, which can be used to disinfect hospitals, schools, hotels, and even aircraft and entertainment halls. Ozone is the gas form, artificially produced indoors, has already been used as an antibacterial and antiviral agent in water treatment.
Meanwhile, according to Johns Hopkins University, the total number of global coronovirus cases is 109.8 million, while deaths have exceeded 2.42 million. In its latest update on Thursday morning, the university’s Center for System Science and Engineering (CSSE) revealed that the current global caseload and death figures were 109,885,555 and 2,429,669 respectively.
