I'm guessing it's like Sous Vide guidelines. Hotter temps = faster safety.

Just ordered an ozone generator for the nursing home.  (Ebay. Amz sold out.)  We're going to set up a high-volume, sealed-off decontamination room for masks & gowns, using 3-5 large, wire-shelf bakers racks so that large quantities of masks and gowns can be hung to be fumigated on all sides.

>132 degrees

The nursing home has a commercial laundry system that decontaminates.  I told her that the dryer could be used for bulk decontamination of unsoiled gowns & masks even if the goods had not been washed.

This is really good.  It gives your daughter and the old folks in her charge a fighting chance.  What you are doing is so important.

Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

Every day counts now. We had an extra commercial O3 unit here at the house, so Louise & I drove the 8-hr round trip today to deliver it.  I never got out of the car. Louise only got out armed with mask, gloves, Clorox wipes, & Lysol.  We stayed 25 feet apart, yelled greetings & O3 instructions, then left.

>Does HEAT kill it?

Seems like it reacts like other viruses/bacteria when it comes to heat. 165 degrees for a second or 145 for 10 minutes. Here is a good article I read on food safety: https://www.seriouseats.com/2020/03/food-safety-and-coronavirus-a-comprehensive-guide.html

> still down on the beach

Massive problem here, too.  Some mayors and a few governors are starting to get mad and giving police power to break up groups and issue tickets with fines.

Our governor has been fairly proactive, but he's dragging his feet on a lockdown.  I'm guessing he'll give in and go to lockdown sometime later this week, hence the roadtrip to the nursing home.  I can't trust an Ebay delivery to get there.

NC is on "forced social distancing."  Basically, no events, no sit-down restaurants and bars.  Based on my ride out to Walmart for the online pickup, that doesn't do much.  The only thing that looked 'off' was restaurant parking lots.  EVERY big box store was bustling with walk-in traffic. NO masks. Even Tractor Supply (they sell pet food & hardware) was packed. WTF!!

Yesterday's trip was a *little* better, at least the traffic count was down.  Still, when I got to towns and -particularly- coastal cities, things were bustling.

When I was 13, I got to accompany my dad when he was called into a massive disaster area as an 'essential consultant.'  You could see an armed soldier posted every 1000 ft (300m) and the orders were 'Shoot to kill."  That would work.

Ye they rushed that one, but the escalation is alarming, the UK's mortality rate (just using (deaths/cases*100)) is 5.26% whereas the global mortality rate is 4.4%, unless mortality rate calcs are more complex than that, i should Google it.

If the 1918 flu got a third of the population, at a time when travel was far less than it is today and the population wasn't even 2 billion then that could easily happen to us, 2 billion or more of us, if it can't be stopped.

This is Mexico, and no mention if they have scientific evidence that this works

Ozone tunnel set up to sanitize market shoppers
 

"In this tunnel, the people who pass are sanitized with oxygen, this
measure gives them protection that lasts 50 minutes with the
disinfection of clothing, hair and the entire body part so that they
can do their shopping.

"The tunnel consists of taking oxygen from the environment and
converting it into O3 oxygens that we know as ozone, what are the
advantages of ozone that kills fungi, viruses and bacteria," explained
Martín Ramírez Falcón, director of Ozone Safety."

Well, they have a FB page

https://www.facebook.com/OZONO-Inocuidad-Alimentaria-1936491566566501/

...and a truck

If you'll look at the truck pix, it appears they treat grain with o3.
