OZONE kills all known Virus & Pathogens.There is a lack of information on the proper handling and disposal of the medical waste associated with diseases like Ebola, which is a level 4 bio-hazard.

The quantity of medical and biohazard waste that is generated during a outbreak in a hospital can increase five fold and during the treatment of Ebola patients and other highly contagious diseases, the amount of waste will be significantly greater.

“To reduce the burden of disease, health-care waste needs sound management, including alternatives to incineration.”  WHO,

Infectious diseases:mean illnesses caused by germs (such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi) that enter the body, multiply, and can cause an infection;

• Some infectious diseases are contagious (or communicable), that is, spread from one person to another.

• Other infectious diseases can be spread by germs carried in air, water, food, or soil. They can also be spread by vectors (like biting insects) or by animals.

Vector borne diseases: There have been 1.5 million West Nile virus infections since 1999. 2.5 billion people are at risk for dengue in more than 100 endemic countries with 50 million cases of dengue fever each year.
