Inactivation of human and simian rotaviruses by ozone.

Department of Applied Science, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York 11973.

The inactivation of simian rotavirus SA-11 and human rotavirus type 2 (Wa) by ozone was compared at 4 degrees C by using single-particle virus stocks. Although the human strain was clearly more sensitive, both virus types were rapidly inactivated by ozone concentrations of 0.25 mg/liter or greater at all pH levels tested. Comparison of the virucidal activity of ozone with that of chlorine in identical experiments indicated little significant difference in rotavirus-inactivating efficiencies when the disinfectants were used at concentrations of 0.25 mg/liter or greater.
