Face masks play a crucial role, new COVID research confirms

An international research team from universities including Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, the University of Padua and the University of Udine in Italy, and the University of Vienna, Austria, has developed a new theoretical model to better assess the risks of spreading viruses such as Covid-19 — with and without a face mask. The results show how the standard ‘safe’ distance of two meters does not always apply but varies greatly depending on a range of environmental factors, and that face masks can indeed play a crucial role.

The current recommendations and understanding around the transmission of respiratory infectious diseases are often based on a diagram developed by the American scientist William Firth Wells in 1934. But this model is very simplified and does not account for the true complexity of transmission.

Nanosynth Group plc (LON:NNN) is focused on the synthesis and application of nanoparticles. The group uses a patented process developed by Dr Cave at Nottingham Trent University.  It has three subsidiaries; Pharm 2 Farm Ltd, nanosynth ltd and Cloudveil.
