Ozone decontamination has potential advantages. It can effectively penetrate every part of a room, including sites that might prove difficult to gain access to with conventional liquids and manual cleaning procedures. It can be switched on and off from the outside after the room has been made airtight. Ozone is cheap to generate although usually at lower concentrations than those used in the present study. Nevertheless, in view of the speed and efficiency of the catalytic conversion, resulting in a return to ambient levels within 15–20 minutes, and an overall treatment cycle of less than one hour, we believe that the Viroforce system is safe and practical.
