We haven’t tested MetalSkin® with the Covid-19 yet.
The French laboratories are actually overwhelmed and they can not compete a test…but we are on the waiting list.
Nevertheless 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 Medical® if we can demonstrate its efficiency against the Covid-19.
