French company BioSerenity has created a protective mask that kills coronavirus. BFMTV reports.
According to the CEO of the company, Marc Frouin, this mask has the ability to “block viruses.” Personal protective equipment consists of four layers, one of which has antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is noted that the mask is intended for single use. It is recommended to wear it for no more than four hours.
The price of the product is 1.49 euros. It can be purchased starting Tuesday 16 February. It is also planned to certify the surgical version of the mask and send it to medical professionals.
Earlier, scientists at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland found that face masks reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus through large drops by 99.9 percent. Experts found that a person standing next to a coughing infected person will get ten thousand times more drops than if the infected person wore a mask and stood even 50 centimeters away from him. In this case, large droplets are considered the main factor in the transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
