An Iranian knowledge-based company, based in Iranian Research Organization for Science and Technology, has created a device which can kill the Coronavirus which causes COVID-19 using Ozone gas (O3).

According to an ISCA report, an ozone generator is also known as an ozonizer or air freshener and is particularly suitable for removing odors and sterilization in restaurants, refrigerated stores, shops, waste and sanitary facilities, as well as for the smell rehabilitation of vehicles, hotel rooms, apartments, holiday homes etc.

The CEO of the company, Dr. Amir Hessam Aqaei, explained that ozone, as a powerful oxidizer, has the ability to kill micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses, so the device, “ozone generator” is able to make ozone from normal air and are normally used as room disinfectants.

He noted that since higher levels of ozone can trigger a variety of health problems including chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and airway inflammation, a programmable timer has been installed so it allows the generator to turn on at different times to clean and disinfect air and surfaces without the presence of people.

As Aqaei declared, the device can be applied to eliminate virus, bacteria, mold, fungi, VOCs such as formaldehyde, benzene and hydrazine, odors, cigarette smells, SHS deodorizer, etc.
