Does ozone sterilization work against COVID-19?

An article published in the Thailand Medical News presents strong evidence that the utilization of ozone (O3) is a contender in the fight to kill coronaviruses (specifically COVID-19) in the air and on surfaces. Ozone was effectively used against the SARS virus, which is considered a close relative and of similar composition to the current coronavirus outbreak. Research is currently ongoing on ozone gas's ability to kill COVID-19.

Like the Powerzone series from Scandia, Ozone generators create 03 onsite from the oxygen in the air. Ozone's ability to break down the protective layer around the cells that harbor viruses, bacteria, and fungi allow it to purge them from its environment by breaking them down. Coronavirus lies in the same category as similar viruses that ozone can disseminate.


The Powerzone is the most effective tool you can use to fight against the onslaught of infectious diseases. The utilization of natural components in the atmosphere over the harmful risks associated with chemicals, like bleach, for sanitation cannot be undervalued. Since O3 is gas, it can fill and clean an entire space with far more precision than traditional sprays and cloth wiping. This low-maintenance, high-efficiency disinfection method will protect you, your staff, and your patrons.


Ozone is an irritant to breathe to humans and pets, and it must be used in vacant spaces only. Once activated, it takes 30+ minutes for the O3 to dissipate back into O2, and the room will be safe for re-entry. The Powerzone is equipped with a motion sensor and will stop when triggered as an added safety measure.


The Powerzone is designed to conquer the battle against microorganisms in steam rooms. Scandia has now developed a variety of O3 generators that can be utilized in homes, fitness centers, schools, spas, daycares, offices, and more. You can better protect yourself and others now and in the future.
