Scientists develop disinfectant spray that kill coronavirus for 90 days

-

- Advertisment -

A group of scientists in Hong Kong University and Technology has invented a new disinfectant spray that kills viruses, including the novel coronavirus, and bacteria for up to 90 days.

The disinfectant spray is called MAP-1 and unlike alcohol or bleach-based solutions it remains effective in killing bacteria and preventing bacteria from spreading even after it has dried.

The chemical can be used on different surfaces, including wood and leather, without changing their texture.

It’s also nontoxic, thus safe for the environment and skin.

According to Professor Yeung Kinglun’s team, it took them 10 years to introduce the spray to the public.

Currently, it’s being used in different facilities in Hong Kong, such as nursing homes, shopping malls, school buses and churches.

The spray is all set to be rolled out in May for consumer use.
