The Corona virus has affected lot of people globally. The disease has so far taken many lives worldwide. In view of the outbreak of Corona virus, the central government in India has made it mandatory to wear masks. The mask is effective in protecting us from the virus. People started making different types of face masks. Seeing the demand of face masks, some people have also started making face masks to match their clothes. But this is not good standard for choice of masks.Even surgical masks made of cloth masks and N95 masks were being used, but now a research has shown that coronavirus over copper survives for the shortest time.
The virus can survive up to 72 hours on steel and plastic, on the same cardboard it survives for 24 hours. On copper it survives for barely 4 hours.
In view of this research, many companies have started making copper masks, which have started trending nowadays. Researchers say that copper I has antimicrobial properties that do not allow bacteria and viruses to live long. Some bacterial viruses become inactive only when they come in contact with the copper surface of copper.Due to these properties, copper masks are becoming popular nowadays. Some companies have also started making copper masks which look similar to cloth masks but the properties are much more effective than cloth masks. Copper-based antimicrobial technology company Cupur has also started the process of producing copper-infused masks in collaboration with Via Sitting and these masks have also received approval from the EPA.
Researchers believe these masks are safer than clothing masks. Copper does not allow the virus to survive much longer due to its antibacterial antimicrobial properties. Use of this mass will reduce any Corona virus figures.
