CONTROLLING CORONAVIRUS TRANSMISSION
There are 3 common ways for CORONAVIRUS TRANSMISSION :
When large droplets, like from sneezes and coughs are projected from the mouth with large viral load - this leads to DROPLET TRANSMISSION.
Droplets are defined as greater than 5 micron, and as such, are affected by gravity - they will fall through air by around 1 foot per second (1 meter in 3 seconds).
SOCIAL DISTANCING is an effective control of Droplet Transmission - the droplet will fall 3ft vertically in 6 feet horizontally so the droplets are mostly unable to be breathed in by another person 6 ft away.
A MASK is worn to reduce the risk of Droplet projection when Social Distancing is not practical. Droplets are caught in the mask, and therefore, a reduction of Droplet Transmission. Masks are to protect others from you, as much as to protect you from them. Surgical Masks worn in hospitals are treated with an anti-microbial agent - any pathogen caught in the mask will be oxidised in the mask (for up to 8 hours).
When a virus loaded ‘droplet' is coughed by Person A, and it falls (with gravity) to a surface, when the droplet evaporates, it leaves a 0.16 micron coronavirus cell on the surface. Person B touches the surface, picks up the virus, self-inoculates when they touch their eyes, nose or mouth.
Solutions against Fomite Transmission are:
SPRAYERS and MISTERS (also known as ULV FOGGERS, and COLD FOGGERS) mimic the viral pathway of DROPLETS by creating droplets. These tools dominated the early ‘treatment’ of businesses as CDC was pronouncing Coronavirus was solely a Droplet and Fomite Transmission disease.
The challenges of SPRAYERS and MISTERS are:
Subsequently, Coronavirus has been declared an Airborne Transmission disease - “it’s in the air we breath” as President Trump explained to Bob Woodward on 7 February 2020.
When a virus-loaded droplet is an aerosol (a droplet less than 5 microns), it will not respond to gravity when suspended in the air. Instead of a droplet landing on a surface and evaporating, an aerosol will never respond to gravity - the water in the aerosol droplet will evaporate leaving even lighter virus cells that can remain suspended in the air we breath ‘forever’.
Each expelled breath from an infected person adds to the ‘viral footprint’ in a poorly ventilated room resulting in a ‘cumulative viral load’. The greater the viral load, the more serious is the potential from infection - resulting in the full range of symptoms from ‘asymptomatic’ (no symptoms), to sickness, to hospitalisation, to ICU and ventilators, to death (mostly people with compromised immune systems).
To understand ‘aerosol’ better, note how your glasses fog with your mask on, or if you breath on cold glass - that is your aerosol breath condensing or precipitating on the glass. Virus cells are encapsulated in these tiny clusters of water molecules.
Once airborne, aerosol viral cells stay airborne much longer - theoretically, forever - such that the viral load will accumulate in any room, decaying only at the rate of natural oxidation from the 21% oxygen in the air we breathe.
The coronavirus cell is actually not a living organism like bacteria, and yet it remains potentially lethal. The virus DNA (the dangerous part) is encapsulated in an RNA protein envelope (or shell). Neither the RNA nor DNA can replicate on surfaces or in the air - the DNA can only replicate when it connects with human DNA - in other words, once inside our bodies, the RNA envelope dissolves, connecting the viral DNA to our human DNA. Now, the battle with our immune system begins.
To destroy the Coronavirus potential of infection of others, the RNA shell (envelope) surrounding the viral DNA needs to be ‘oxidized’. Once the RNA is oxidized, it breaks down, exposing the viral DNA to more oxidizing elements (i.e. oxygen in the air, disinfectant, negative ions, ozone, or UVC)..
When aerosol droplets clustered around the virus evaporate, the virus can remain airborne with BROWNIAN MOTION (the principle of permanent suspension of aerosolized particles, cells, and droplets) for days - that’s THE AIR WE BREATH.
Solutions against AIRBORNE TRANSMISSION are:
1) Open natural VENTILATION to ‘turn the air’ frequently, thereby reducing the chance for a cumulative viral build-up.
The challenges for natural ventilation are:
2) UVC LIGHT Exposure - by adding a complex UVC light arrangement in a room, the viral load in the room can be reduced.
The challenges of UVC lighting are:
Ozone is a 'super-oxidiser', and, at safe levels, very effective against viruses and pathogens.
4) the most practical solution is to use a STRUCTURED SANITIZATION PROTOCOL with an AIRBORNE SANITIZER - a genuine aerosolized disinfectant FOG, large concentration of negative ions and/or ozone.
The benefits of Airborne Sanitizers are:
FOG BLASTER PRO:
A mains power THERMAL IMPACTION FOGGER (blasting aerosolized droplets as small as 0.25 micron) with added NEGATIVE IONS and safe level OZONE for maximum sanitization of Airborne Coronavirus for indoor areas with limited ventilation. Combined with a STRUCTURED SANITIZATION PROTOCOL, the viral footprint in a room can be ‘reset’ at regular intervals, reducing any cumulative viral load present, facilitating the ongoing use of the space for working staff, or patrons of a social venue.
FOG BLASTER PRO can also be used for effective sanitization of surfaces. As it expressed a DRY FOG jetstream, FOG BLASTER PRO does not leave surfaces saturated, does not blow papers around, nor cause them to curl up with excessive saturation. It is safe on any electronic equipment that would be safe for a disinfectant wipe-down (eg. keyboards).
