This latest form of the coronavirus called SARS-Cov-2 (Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 of the genus Betacoronavirus) is the virus strain that has been the cause of COVID-19 raging havoc around the world and resulted in a pandemic.
The virus is highly contagious and spread in air, from contaminated surfaces and via personal contact causing severe acute respiratory illness manifested as coughing, fever and pneumonia similar to that caused by the variant of the coronavirus called “Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus” (MERS-CoV) that was first described in September 2012.
SARS-CoV-2 is a positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus with a single linear RNA segment. Single stranded viruses are classified as positive or negative depending on the sense or polarity of the RNA. The positive-sense viral RNA can be translated into protein in the host cell. Like other coronaviruses, SARS-CoV-2 has four structural proteins, known as the S (spike), E (envelope), M (membrane), and N (nucleocapsid) proteins; the N protein holds the RNA genome, and the S, E, and M proteins together create the viral envelope
As the air inside the system will remain for barely a seconds the UV reaction on the virus will be just negligible. The Hydroxyl Radical's reacting time is much faster compared to UV so that they (Radicals) are able to decompose the RNA and DNA of the virus
Yes, Ultra Violet C Rays (commonly used as 254 nm) kills pathogens and viruses.
But at this stage, no data is available to suggest that it does destruct the RNA / DNA of SARS -Cov-2 the virus causing Covid19
UVC light doesn’t discriminate when it comes to ruining genetic material, though, and can damage human skin and eye cells. Some particular UVC wavelengths have been associated with skin cancer or cataracts,
U V Rays should be adequately covered so that they are not released in the ambient.
Even if they are used then they must be switched off before a person enters the room. Then again what is the advantage if the room is frequently used.
Pulire Biosystems Private Limited is a leading supplier of Air Steriliser. Our Product "Pulire" generates Hydroxyl Radical which are one of the strongest oxidising agent which react chemically with the lipids, protein carbohydrates and other organic chemicals in the cell membranes of bacteria viruses and other pathogens and disrupt their structure
Cohn, C.A., Mueller,S.,et al "hydroxyl radical formation and its effect on nucleic acids" : (a) reactivity of -OH towards Organics has been exploited in the remediation of organic solvents (b) RNA is stable in the presence of H2O2 but degrades rapidly in the presence of -OH
Today, worldwide number of international companies are using the same technology to fight the detrimental effect of coronavirus. They have claimed that hydroxyl radical have been completely effective in killing the virus.
THIS IS NOT A MYTH BUT REALITY
Some of the international companies have tested their equipment against the MS2 virus, which is an excellent surrogate for the Coronavirus as both are positive-sense single-stranded RNA, or (+)ssRNA viruses and found the results to be highly encouraging.
On this basis alone we can say that Hydroxyl Radical will be highly effective against coronavirus.
RECENTLY WE ALSO GOT AN ORDER FROM GOVT. DOON MEDICAL COLLEGE TO REDUCE THE HARMFUL EFFECT OF THE CORONAVIRUS.
Hydroxyl radicals also known as the detergent of the atmosphere are the perfect sterilising agent. They react so fast that they are consumed within a few seconds, so they never accumulate. Hydroxyl Radicals are free radicals and contain an unpaired electron which makes them unstable and so they seek out and capture electrons from other substances in order to neutralize themselves and soon a chain reaction begins and thousands of free radical reactions can occur within a few seconds on the primary reaction. They keep air safe to breathe by decomposing natural and man-made pollutants and killing microorganisms. They sanitize air and surfaces by a natural process called lysing, where the hydroxyls react chemically with the lipids, protein carbohydrates and other organic chemicals in the cell wall and membranes of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and disrupt their structure. The interior contents of the cells leak and the organism is destroyed. The mechanism for killing microorganisms is not biological, so the bacteria or viruses cannot develop any form of immunity.
The superoxide anion is produced as a by-product of several steps in the electron transport chain. Is a highly reactive free radical as an intermediate called the (Q·−). This intermediate leads to electron "leakage", when electrons jump directly to oxygen and form the superoxide anion. Peroxide is also produced from the oxidation of reduced flavoproteins.
