In yet another breakthrough by Indian Scientists, a protective chemical coating likely to be effective against COVID-19 has been developed by Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, Bangalore. The proven efficiency of the coating in complete destruction of influenza virus affirms the strong belief of leading scientists that the coating may also be effective in destroying the novel Corona Virus. Science and Engineering Research Board, a unit of the Department of Science and Technology is supporting the further development of this coating for the country’s battle against COVID-19.The coating is likely to be used on PPEs, masks, gowns, gloves, face shields, used by doctors for enhanced protection.
During the research, the coated surfaces completely killed different drug-resistant bacteria and fungi as well within 30 to 45 minutes.
