Due to their low gas temperature and high reactivity, nonequilibrium atmospheric pressure plasmas have gained recognition in surface disinfection and bio-decontamination. This effect is mainly attributed to the production of numerous reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS)1. However, most of these studies are focused on bacteria and bio-films, and less on viruses. The efficacy of the underlying plasma-aided inactivation of viruses and its mechanisms are still under investigation.
