During these uncertain and difficult times, sharing positive and science-based information is as valuable as it is critical to support society’s fight against COVID-19. According to a research study published in 1990 (Sturman et al., 1990), lab tests conducted on coronavirus (i.e. mouse hepatitis virus- MHV) found out that coronavirus’s infectivity is sensitive to pH. Biochemical and electron microscopic evidence demonstrated that the virus was stable in pH 6 and at 37°C (half-life 24 hours), but it was rapidly and irreversibly inactivated by brief treatment at pH 8 and at 37°C (half-life 30 mins) resulting in loss of virus infectivity, the aggregation of virions, and increased virus-induced cell fusion.

NOTE. Only a natural high alkaline pH can be used for virus infectivity. Ionised alkaline pH controlled water will not be effective in virus prevention or elimination.

WET Group will soon be launching its Elite S water system that prevents Coronavirus from infecting water and a refillable handheld mouthspray from this system to kill bacteria and coronavirus from the mouth and face.
