The Covid-19 can not live on copper
Scientist in the USA have recently evaluate the stability of the Covid-19 on various surfaces, including copper that is the active substance used to formulate MetalSkin®. The study (*) show that the virus has a very short lifespan on copper as it is eliminated within 4 hours, to compare with stainless steel where it can live for up to two days.
This is a great hope for new applications for MetalSkin®.
