Comment on Manna et al. SARS-CoV-2 Inactivation in Aerosol by Means of Radiated Microwaves. Viruses 2023, 15, 1443

Abstract

In a recent article published in Viruses by Manna et al. [1], the authors estimate the resonant frequency of SARS-CoV-2 particles using elastic continuum theory of the vibrational modes of a sphere [2]. Unfortunately, the article provides an incorrect solution to the eigenvalue equation. Although this does not influence the validity of the experimental results, the error will be misleading if the solution is used to select frequencies for testing virus inactivation in other studies. This comment provides details on how to obtain a correct solution numerically.
