Although persistence in drinking-water is possible, there is no evidence from surrogate human coronaviruses that they are present in surface or groundwater sources or transmitted through contaminated drinking water. The COVID-19 virus is an enveloped virus, with a fragile outer membrane. Generally, enveloped viruses are less stable in the environment and are more susceptible to oxidants, such as chlorine. ...... In places where centralized water treatment and safe piped water supplies are not available, a number of household water treatment technologies are effective in removing or destroying viruses, including boiling or using high-performing ultrafiltration or nanomembrane filters, solar irradiation and, in non-turbid waters, UV irradiation and appropriately dosed free chlorine.
Today, more than ten thousand people are protected by the BacTerminator® infection control system when visiting their dentist or using showers - and the number is growing as more systems are being installed.
Our infection control systems are widely applicable - e.g. they secure quality in the food industry and provide infection control in schools, care homes and residential buildings.
Our body has developed one of nature’s most effective infection control systems. Using natural salts derived from water, the body produces a extremely effective disinfectant – hypochlorous acid (HOCl). This super-oxidation process, known as phagocytic killing, is performed by some of the white blood cells (phagocytes).
The disinfection process takes place without handling of chemicals. Our BacTerminator® cell produces the same disinfectant as the human body, using the same resources – water and salt.
