“Have you ever experienced severe diarrhea or vomiting? If you have, it’s likely you had norovirus. If you haven’t, chances are you will sometime in your life. Norovirus is a very contagious virus that anyone can get from contaminated food or surfaces, or from an infected person. It is the most common cause of diarrhea and vomiting (also known as gastroenteritis) and is often referred to as food poisoning or stomach flu. In the United States, a person is likely to get norovirus about 5 times during their life.” ~ CDC
The Norovirus is known to be one of the more difficult strains to combat. The good news is that the ZONO Cabinet has been validated as a solution to help fight it!
“The UGA testing followed the confirmatory virucidal effectiveness test and was found to kill 99.99% of noroviruses, which is a disinfecting level for viruses.”
Why did ZONO test for Noroviruses with UGA?
Noroviruses are known to be among the most difficult viruses to kill. The ZONO was accepted for testing under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Cannon. The UGA Center for Food safety partners with industry to minimize the risk of pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins through detection and elimination. The UGA testing followed the confirmatory virucidal effectiveness test and was found to kill 99.99% of noroviruses, which is a disinfecting level for viruses. The study that Dr. Cannon performed was published in a peer review journal entitled: Ozone: Science and Engineering (May –June 2013).
