Kill the Virus

Covid-19 is a disease identified in Wuhan, China, and is now being spread globally. Everyone is encouraged to take the following precautions to prepare for this likely outbreak.
Coronaviruses are a group of viruses commonly causing illness in animals and humans. Some of these viruses often circulate in the United States and very commonly cause upper respiratory symptoms like coughing or runny nose, and in some cases can cause very serious illnesses.
What is a virus? A virus is a biological agent that reproduces inside the cells of living hosts. When infected by a virus, a host cell is forced to produce thousands of identical copies of the original virus at an extraordinary and infectious rate. Viruses are made up of a DNA or RNA genome inside of a protein shell called a capsid. Some viruses have an external membrane and can be very diverse. They come in different shapes and structures, and have different kinds of genomes, and infect different hosts. Viruses cannot reproduce on their own.
Chlorine dioxide, as you will read about throughout this site, has a unique ability to destroy a viruses cell membrane and DNA/RNA structure by penetrating its surface and destroying its cellular components. Known for its limited contact time and high kill log, Chlorine dioxide is one of the most powerful virucides available. greenO2 MedX is a topical spray disinfectant that can be used on all surfaces as a spray and leave, or spray and wipe.
ClO2 disinfects in two separate ways. As a permeable gas, it penetrates through the cell membrane and reacts selectively with cellular components breaking down the cells structure, not allowing it to replicate. It also inhibits critical cell functionality, including the disruption of protein synthesis by oxidation thus altering the cell membrane through to destruction.
The ensuing damage resulting from this multi-faceted cellular attack makes ClO2 both broad spectrum and efficacious at very low dose rates.
Higher yield & greater cost efficiencies - Chlorine Dioxide has a higher oxidation capacity, and a lower oxidation strength than most species of chlorine, making it at least 2.6 times more powerful per ppm according to WHO CT values.
No carcinogenic by-products - Chlorine Dioxide acts only by oxidation and does not combine with organic compounds to form environmentally hazardous by-products
Less corrosive - Chlorine Dioxide has a lower oxidation potential and does not hydrolyse to form an acid making it less corrosive
Works over a wide pH - Chlorine Dioxide is effective at all pH’s below 12.
Effective against complex organisms - Chlorine Dioxide has been found to be effective against complex organisms such as cysts and protozoa including Cryptosporidium, Giardia and amoeba.
