Merchants, if you own or operate a store or restaurant and need to install a temporary plywood glass protective covering while Panamanian edicts require you close up shop temporarily, call Taller de Wolff at 6955.0013 or 6520.7860 for a quote. firstname.lastname@example.org
We are in a position of being unable to ignore the fact and the threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus. But it need not be the all-consuming central focus of our lives. The subject is difficult to avoid on television, but I am able to go out to my workshop and spend quiet time straightening things and sorting nuts, bolts, screws and other hardware. Our dog is unaware of the virus problem and is still excited about hunting and retrieving his toys. There are meals to prepare and dishes to wash. Life goes on, but with fewer places to go. Though we don't need to constantly think about the virus problem, we remain aware of the need to take extra precautions, wash hands regularly and well and, when going out, to be aware of the need to wear gloves or sanitize doorknobs and various handles, such as handles of shopping carts. If we do these things well and limit or stop visits in our homes, we should be able to maintain a good defense against infection from the virus. However, as we all know, perfection is very difficult to achieve. What if you don't remember to remove your gloves before touching your own doorknob? What if you need to ride in a taxi or to give someone a ride in your car? What if someone you're sure is "clean" visits in your home but later realizes that he or she has been exposed? Sanitizing will become the order of the day. See the information below. Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus, and since the structure of the new COVID-19 coronavirus is almost identical to that of the SARS coronavirus, it is relatively safe to say that it will also work on the new coronavirus, though it must be noted that there are no studies to date except one that is currently ongoing in China at the Institute of Virology in Hubei with regard to this. Progress of that study has shown that it works, and the study should be concluded by the end of this week and officially published in the journal Virology. There are more than 17 scientific studies that show Ozone gas is able to destroy the SARS coronavirus. Ozone is a naturally occurring gas created from oxygen atoms. The oxygen molecule is made up of 2 oxygen atoms. These oxygen molecules are broken into atoms by the corona discharge during lightning storms or by UV light from the Sun. Single oxygen atoms cannot exist alone without regrouping back into di-atomic oxygen molecules. During this recombination stage some atoms will regroup into loosely bonded tri-atomic oxygen. This new molecule is called Ozone or O3. Ozone generators are able to make ozone from normal air and are commonly used as room disinfectants. The antipathogenic effects of ozone have been substantiated for several decades. It can spread to contact everything in a house. Its killing action upon bacteria, viruses, fungi, and for many species of protozoa, serves as the basis for its increasing use in disinfecting municipal water supplies in cities worldwide. Typically, viruses are small, independent particles, built of crystals and macromolecules. Unlike bacteria, they multiply only within the host cell. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA. At higher concentrations, ozone destroys the capsid or exterior protein shell by oxidation. Numerous families of viruses including poliovirus I and 2, human rotavruses, Norwalk virus, Parvoviruses, and Hepatitis A, B and non-A non-B are among many others that are susceptible to the virucidal actions of ozone. Most research efforts on ozone's virucidal effects have centered upon ozone's propensity to break apart lipid molecules at sites of multiple bond configuration. Indeed, once the lipid envelope of the virus is fragmented, its DNA or RNA core cannot survive. Non-enveloped viruses (Adenoviridae, Picornaviridae, namely poliovirus, Coxsachie, Echovirus, Rhinovirus, Hepatitis A and E, and Reoviridae (Rotavirus), have also begun to be studied. Viruses that do not have an envelope are called "naked viruses." They are constituted of a nucleic acid core (made of DNA or RNA) and a nucleic acid coat, or capsid, made of protein. Ozone, however, aside from its well-recognized action upon unsaturated lipids, can also interact with certain proteins and their constituents, namely amino acids. Indeed, when ozone comes in contact with capsid proteins, protein hydroxides and and protein hydroperoxides are formed. Viruses have no protections against oxidative stress. The enveloped viruses are usually more sensitive to physico-chemical challenges than are naked virions. Although ozone's effects upon unsaturated lipids is one of its best-documented biochemical actions, ozone is known to interact with proteins, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids. The new coronavirus is an enveloped virus. If you have an air freshening ozone machine such as an Alpine brand or similar brand, I suggest that you keep it operating in your home a lot of the time while limiting open windows. Just now, we are all properly taking serious precautions, and there seem to be few people in our area who are infected. That may or may not change. If you should know or have a strong reason to believe that an infected person has been inside your home (or car), and you want to sanitize with ozone, give me a call at 6745-2828 or send a WhatsApp message. The house would need to have all windows and doors closed, with no people, pets or house plants inside for four to six hours, depending on the size of the house. Incidentally, at the same time, the ozone would kill any mold and mold odors that may be in the house. Please understand that this is not crass commercialism or a big sales pitch. I provide scientific information, and you decide what to do. I have a high-output ozone machine usually used for controlling mold, mold odors, smoke odors and other odors. It happens that it is also effective against viruses, and I would not want to withhold that information or the machine's availability from anyone who should need it. The same is true of the use of colloidal silver to keep the immune system strong or to treat an infection. It is known that colloidal silver can kill more than 650 different bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is known to kill the SARS Coronavirus.
