Articles such as this are starting to appear that explain how ozone therapy at home can be used to prevent infection and destroy viruses. Can the same be said for COVID19 coronavirus?
Ozone therapy has been used extensively worldwide. While it may not be commonly administered in the US, it is legal and in fact practiced by many physicians who inject ozone intravenously and intra-articularly (into joints). It has been used for every type infection as it destroys biofilms, rapidly reproducing cells and virus structures which have few antioxidant defenses and as an immunity boost stimulating ATP energy accumulation and DNA production of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory proteins. Dentists use it for gum disease, bone remodeling and healing and for abscessed root canals. Use of ozone therapy at home may be the best approach as the world deals with travel restrictions and self isolation. To use ozone therapy at home see the links below with instructional videos and ozone generator equipment available online.
While ozone/oxygen gas can be harmful when inhaled directly, ozonide is a safe to use form of the ozone gas. To do this it must be carefully "washed" by bubbling the ozone-oxygen gas through a suitable oil such as olive oil .If this is not done correctly however, the gas inhaled can be very irritating to the lungs. See this link for instructions. With ozone oil washing, the resulting ozonide gas can be inhaled, driving the anti-viral, anti-bacterial gas directly into the lung tissue. By getting ozonide deep into the alveoli and bronchioles, users have a beneficial home remedy to aid in the prevention and treatment of numerous pulmonary disorders.
Recent controversial comments from by President Donald Trump regarding injection of disinfectant have caused many to declare that he was referring to ozone therapy, the injectable form of O3-O2 gas. While we do not make claims regarding the effectiveness of ozone therapy for COVID coronavirus, there are articles that make such claims. Physicians have claimed that ozone therapy can cure serious viral infections. Robert Rowan MD, a pioneer in this field traveled to Africa to treat practitioners infected with Ebola. As he states, the treatment was very successful.

Ozone gas has been proven to kill the SARS coronavirus and since the structure of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus (COVID 19) 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 is no studies to date except one that is current ongoing n China at the Institute of Virology In Hubei with regards 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 normally used as room disinfectants.
The antipathogenic effects of ozone have been substantiated for several decades. Its killing action upon bacteria, viruses, fungi, and in many species of protozoa, serve 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 rotaviruses, 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 protein hydroxides 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 action, ozone is known to interact with proteins, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids.
The new coronavirus is an enveloped virus.
