WHO (World Health Organization) guidance on the use of masks
Current information that the two main routes of transmission of the COVID-19 virus are respiratory droplets and contact.
Respiratory droplets are regenerated when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Any person who is in close contact (within 1 m) with someone who has respiratory symptoms (coughing, sneezing) is at risk.
Droplets may also land on surfaces where the virus could remain viable;thus, immediate environment of an infected individual can serve as a source of transmission (contact transmission).
Wearing a medical mask is one of the prevention measures that can limit the spread of certain respiratory viral diseases, including COVID-19. However, the use of mask alone is insufficient to provide an adequate level of protection, and other measures should also be adopted.
The power of using Filters made of copper, silver, and gold.
Copper are widely used as antiviral agents because they have a broad spectrum of antiviral activity against both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses like norovirus, MRSA, virulent strains of E.coli, and coronavirus – including the novel strain causing the COVID-19 pandemic.
Professor Bill Keevil, University of Southampton, explained in a recent article, the copper doesn’t just kill these pathogens; it destroys them, right down to the nucleic acids, or reproductive blueprints, inside. “There’s no chance of mutaion or evolution because all the genes are being destroyed”. In otherwords, using copper doesn’t come with the risk of over-prescribing antibiotics.
Copper filters are designed to be long-term sustainable and durable, meaning the copper ions will not wash away and last the lifetime of the product. Therefore you never need to rely on disposable face masks again – making them perfect for everyday life from grocery store strips commuting to work!
