A few years ago, the American Ozone Association was invited to a small West African nation that was in the grip of an Ebola outbreak. The virus was sweeping the nation. Its victims were old, young, male, female, rich, poor, with a death rate of about 50% for all who contracted the virus. In contrast, the Coronavirus has a death rate of about 2%. The Ebola virus is spread by blood or body fluid contact.

Desperate for help, for a cure, for containment and treatment, the African government invited the American Ozone Association to their country to test their theory that ozone could kill the Ebola virus.

Globally, it’s the Germans who have made great advances in the study and application of ozone in both industry and medicine. In the world today, over 7,000 city water systems use ozone rather than chlorine to clean their water. Ozone can kill E-coli and other water contaminants faster than chlorine. Chlorine kills E-coli in 31 seconds; ozone in 0.9 seconds. According to the German textbooks, no known virus can live in the presence of certain concentrations of ozone. It was this hopeful data that brought the AOA to a small nation in crisis for one week to treat patients.

The treatment: injecting into a vein, using a very large syringe, about 50 cc of ozone gas at a concentration that kills viruses. The procedure takes about 5 minutes. Some of you may be concerned that you could kill a person by injecting that much gas into a person’s vein. Be assured, this is not the case. Ozone is 3 atoms of oxygen. It dissolves in less than a second once it is in the bloodstream so no gas bubbles can form and cause an air pocket in the body.

Because of government regulations and other political restrictions, the 2 American doctors sent to this African country were only able to treat patients for 7 days. They were able to treat 21 patients; all but 3 were confirmed Ebola patients. The unconfirmed patients had been contaminated by the virus via a needle stick from an infected needle.

The results: All patients treated with the ozone recovered, with one exception. The patient who died had been very sick when treated. 8-12 hours after the infusion of the ozone, no viruses could be detected. Within 24 hours, all patients were remarkably better.

The cost: less than 50 cents a patient!

This was a very small study; a snapshot in a crisis. But it begs the question: can ozone kill CoVid 19? It would be interesting to see if lessons learned from the Ebola study could be applied to the Coronavirus.

In closing, a helpful tip learned from international travel: Using a Q-tip, coat each nostril with ozonated olive oil, twice a day. Lining the nostrils with ozone should help to kill viruses as they attempt to enter the body.

Safe safe. Stay healthy.
