Vietnam and Russia scientists claim victory over COVID-19
Internet edition “Sputnik” has published an article about the research of
Nguyen Quoc Shi, professor of the Department of General Physics and Nuclear
Fusion of MPEI. The main topic of the article was investigation of cold plasma.
COVID-19, people need to confront the infections from the outer medium.
Molecules of coronavirus tend to stay in the air and on different surfaces for
a long time.
alcohol-containing and antiseptic liquids are the main types of disinfectant means
that contribute to elimination of pathogen microorganisms. However, these
substances have some disadvantages, such as a strong smell that affects the

different countries develop new technologies of sterilization. Team of Russian
scientists from Skolkovo has created a device for water treatment with the
technology of cold plasma and turned it into a weapon that is annihilating
microorganisms: fungus, bacteria and viruses. Proteins are destroyed in the treated
liquid and after evaporation the surface is completely pure.
destroyed after the contact with the treated liquid called Magnaril that
contains active forms of oxygen and hypochlorous acid. Magnaril can be used to
clean the medical masks and different surfaces and to be vaporized in air. Unlike
spirits and bleachers it is completely safe for human and has no smell. The
creators of Magnaril supposed that it can destroy the coronavirus stain that
caused the COVID-19 outbreak.
of the patent of the Russian scientists received special attention at Hanoi
Technology Institute VinIT. Professor of MPEI Nguyen Quoc Shi, labeled by some
state honors, being a Head of Hanoi Technology Institute, has contributed to new
scientific and technological achievements in different domains, including power
engineering, preservation of historical legacy (for example, the Michon temple
complex in Quang Nam province), utilization of waste and, the last but not the
least, medicine, that is especially important facing the pandemic threat.
The president of
the VINIT Institute, professor Nguyen Quoc Shi, told Sputnik that in the past
three months the Institute has been actively studying ways to combat the spread
of the COVID-19 virus and has achieved some important results.
“We use the cold plasma as well”, said
professor Nguyen Quoc Shi. “But unlike our Skolkovo colleagues, we use the cold
plasma to create an ionizing air stream that is pulverized in the air and
treats surfaces and people. The disinfection method of ours is the same as of
Skolkovo scientists, affordable and effective against the virus.”
