HWASEONG, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“As it is harmless, I readily clean my hands using ‘Oracle Water’ after returning home, instead of other hand-detergents,” said a citizen of Daegu who was receiving the antiseptic solution at a community service center.
South Korea had the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases after China but the number reduced after using the ‘Oracle Water’ produced by Oracle Water System to prevent epidemics.
MAK provided ‘Oracle Water’ to antiseptic solution spreading vehicles at Nam-gu Office in Daegu and 13 community service centers in the city for preventing epidemics of the city, households, and citizens.
The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the city decreased from 390 on March 7 when the city started to use ‘Oracle Water’ to 297 on March 8, 190 on March 9 and to 32 on March 17, showing a reduction by 91.7%.
“The most important step to stop spreading Coronavirus is the prevention of epidemics,” said Byung Joon Chun, President of MAK. “As it provides 6~7 times* stronger sterilizing power compared to other disinfectants, Oracle Water can rapidly prevent epidemics. And sterilization effect of Oracle Water was already recognized by removing anthrax bacteria and H1N1 viruses.”
In coping with variants of harmful viruses, MAK developed Oracle Water System based on 11 related patents. Using plasma, Oracle Water System produces ‘Oracle Water’ by dissolving ozone in the nano-micro bubble in water with the highest dissolution rate of 70% in the world. ‘Oracle Water’ provides outstanding sterilizing effects while being eco-friendly as ozone is decomposed into oxygen molecules in water unlike chemical disinfectants and can be applied widely.
Having concluded a contract with GW in China, a disinfection service company designated by the Hangzhou city government, to supply 18 units of Oracle Water System, MAK is scheduled to ship the systems in April.
“We are receiving inquiries from countries impacted by COVID-19 and concentrating efforts on manufacturing Oracle Water Systems, day and night, to help countries getting over COVID-19 across the world,” added Chun.
