These facemasks from Switzerland destroy the Coronavirus – and have even more potential”

With the Luzerner Zeitung, Sanjeev Swamy (Founder and CEO of Livinguard) discusses a recent scientific study confirming the efficacy of the Livinguard Technology in destroying the novel Coronavirus, as well as the manifold applications and use-cases for the proprietary Livinguard Technology in re-thinking mankind’s overall approach to hygiene and safety. Sanjeev discusses the findings of an EU-funded study conducted by the Freie Universität Berlin and the RWTH Aachen which confirm that Livinguard masks inactivate up to 99.9% of Sars-CoV-2 pathogens they come in touch with, and therefore not only protect against viruses and bacteria, but also permanently destroy them. The applications and use-cases of the Livinguard Technology in fundamentally rewiring our universal approach to hygiene and safety are not limited to facemasks or other wearable textile products.
