US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Russian scientists from Skolkovo have found a way to effectively fight bacteria, fungi and viruses. Experts have found that cold plasma-treated water can be a deadly weapon even against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
The liquid was called “Megnaril.” In such water, proteins are destroyed, and after drying, nothing remains on the treated surface.
The technology works as follows. The installation produces cold plasma – gas from charged and uncharged particles, which enters simple water. After this, the atoms lose some of the electrons and, as a result, can no longer connect to the H2O molecule.
This leads to the appearance of various forms of oxygen and hydrogen, which damage the cells of viruses.
In addition to “aggressive” oxygen, Megnaril also destroys viruses due to hypochlorous acid.
“One tenth of a percent of the salt of such an acid in water prevents the reproduction of coronavirus. The acid itself is much more active than its salt. This suggests that such a liquid will not only stop the reproduction, but also kill the pathogen, ”said Dmitry Balabolin, head of the company based in Skolkovo, Magnaril aqua lab.
It is possible to use such water both for processing masks and various surfaces, and for spraying in air. It is safe for humans and quite cheap to manufacture – about 100 rubles per thousand liters.
