A must watch video
An interesting video is published by IZReviews on their YouTube channel recently. In this video the presenter named Ilya reads out a scientific study that could possibly be the way to stop the spread of coronavirus bacteria from the commonly touched surfaces.
Extensive use of copper in public places can help combat spread of the recently erupted pandemic influenza or popularly known as swine flue (H1N1) due to the red metal’s anti bacterial property, said a study conducted by professor Bill Keevil from the University of Southhampton, presented at the BIT Life Sciences’ 2nd Annual World Summit of anti-virals in Beijing on July 18.
The study further found that copper touch surfaces can significantly reduce the concentration of influenza A virus on them, raising hopes that it may also be effective against other strains of the virus. About 75 per cent of influenza A are knocked out in 1 hour on a copper surface and almost completely in 6 hours.
