KILLED BY AIR
Nov 23, 1998

CAN THE HIV VIRUS BE KILLED WHEN EXPOSED TO OXEGEN? MY CLASS IS DOING AN INVETSIGATION

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Perhaps, especially when O2 becomes O3 (ozone). However normal levels of oxygen are required for cells to live. Cells are where the virus needs to live to replicate. Therefore normal levels of oxygen that is in the air would not kill the virus. MH
