Main Question or Discussion Point
Hello, looking to find out what the term "10000 units per 15 min (quick reduction)" from the WHO means in terms of using heat to kill a virus.
Thanks. Later in the document, they clarify that the amount refers to "10 000 infectious virus units in 15 min." So basically, they had a solution of the virus containing 10,000 infectious viruses, heated it at 56°C for 15 min, and found no infectious viruses remaining after heat treatment (meaning the heat had inactivated all of the viruses in solution).
