Scientists across the globe are working round the clock to prepare a vaccine for the pandemic Covid-19. The development of vaccine is in various stages and it would take considerable time to come up with a full-fledged vaccine.
In this time, Japanese researchers have found a breakthrough. Scientists at Fujita Health University in their latest research have come to a conclusion that Ozone gas could kill the virus. Ozone, a type of oxygen molecule, is known to inactivate many pathogens. But concentration levels of Ozone should be between 0.05 to 0.1 parts per million (ppm) and this is harmless to humans.
However, the scientists are working on the complete study before they can get a nod from the government authorities.
