Even a simple surgical mask can prevent spread of Covid

A simple surgical mask effectively reduces the transmission of the novel coronavirus in most environments and situations, according to a new study from Germany.

However, in environments with potentially high airborne virus concentrations such as medical settings and densely occupied indoor spaces, masks with higher filtration efficiency, such as the N95 masks, should be used and combined with other protective measures such as intensive ventilation, said the study.

Pharm2farm uses a patented process for producing and functionalising nanoparticles for various applications including human, animal and crop health. Pharm2farm is a wholly owned subsidiary of Remote Monitored Systems (LON:RMS).
