COVID Killer Masks - New Technology

The I Shield mask has six layers. The outermost and innermost layers have a patent-pending tekFABRIK infused with an IS 212 molecule. Lab tests have shown this mask kills the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the covid-19 pandemic.   The Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology in Thiruvananthapuram, a nodal organization to study the novel coronavirus, put us through exacting tests. They said that they got a 99.99% kill rate on SARS-CoV-2 repeatedly. Tests at C-CAMP and University of South Florida showed the mask kills other flu viruses and disease-causing bacteria, apart from the covid-19 virus.   The way the mask’s IS 212 molecule works is similar to how soap and alcohol destroy the covid-19 virus. Within minutes it ruptures the lipid envelope of the virus, which makes it unstable. If the virus envelope is ruptured then the RNA or genetic material gets exposed, making the virus inactive.   This is unlike a drug which targets the virus itself to stop it from attaching to a host or slow its replication. The virus needs a lipid envelope to survive. Rupturing that is one strategy to prevent its spread.

Valuable opinion

Nice information but very difficult to wear this mask during duties hour particularly senior like me very much difficult to wear mask for long hours. Safe and secure,so all are requested to take all preventive and precautionary measures suggested by authorities from time to time.

More thicker the mask, more difficult to breath through the mask More chances of hypoxia More chances of hypercarbia Lesser tolerance to wear it for long time More feeling of suffocation It would be difficult to wear it during long duty hours

How much is the thickness & does it affect the nasal mucosa?

Informative

Nice one
