CONTROLLING CORONAVIRUS TRANSMISSION

There are 3 common ways for CORONAVIRUS TRANSMISSION : 


DROPLET 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). 


FOMITE TRANSMISSION: 

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: 

  1. WASHING of HANDS with an oil or protein based soap (eg. palm oil base) will break down the RNA protein shell, expose the coronavirus DNA, and oxidize it. 
  1. HAND SANITIZING with a high concentration alcohol, or sufficiently high concentration disinfectant will break down the RNA protein shell, expose the coronavirus DNA and oxidize it. 
  1. WIPING FREQUENTLY TOUCHED OBJECTS with a sufficiently high concentration liquid Disinfectant will break down the RNA protein shell, expose the coronavirus DNA, and oxidize it.  
  1. SPRAYERS and MISTERS:  Battery pack SPRAYERS and air-powered MISTERS are also able to reduce FOMITE TRANSMISSION with a rapid coverage (saturation) of SURFACES with a sufficiently high concentration of disinfectant liquid.  

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:

    1. They saturate surfaces, electronics and papers, often requiring a secondary wipe-down if natural evaporation is not convenient.  
    2. The droplets are large, and the spray volume is high, resulting in a high cost of disinfectant liquid.
    3. Droplets cluster in the air and drop faster, then cluster on surfaces, creating beads of liquid that can leave spots, corrode metals, and remain saturated longer. 

 

AIRBORNE TRANSMISSION: 

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: 

    1.   Buildings without natural flow through cannot use natural ventilation. 
    2.   Outdoor settings are only practical during months of the year with pleasant temperatures.

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: 

    1. UVC requires a longer contact time to oxidize the RNA - depending on the distance of the light source from the coronavirus. 
    2. UVC is line-of-sight - so it has no effect in ‘shadows’.
    3. UVC is carcenogenic, so rooms need to be empty of people when e UVC lights are turned on.

3)  OZONE 

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: 

    1. DRY FOG means a lower volume of liquid disinfectant used - the running cost is as low as $0.0062 cents per square foot ($0.02 per square meter).
    2. A lower volume of air-speed means surfaces can be sanitized with no saturation, no blowing of papers, and no curling of papers.
    3. TOP-DOWN sanitizing - using a pole-mounted Airborne Sanitizer means the air space is sanitized from the ceiling to the floor, relying on both the 10 FOOT (3 meter) jetstream, and Brownian Motion to mimic the viral pathway of Airborne Coronavirus. 
    4. TRIPLE ATTACK oxidation of coronavirus cells with aerosolized disinfectant, negative ions and safe level ozone.
    5. Anyone can do it - it’s a simple, lightweight tool that can be directed to any and all object, furniture and space for complete coverage. 
    6. Electrostatic benefits means the aerosolized droplets are kept separated in suspension, and repel each other on surfaces to get a more complete coverage with up to 75% less volume of liquid.

 

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).
