Copper Inactivates the Virus that Causes COVID-19 in One Minutes
Professor C. W. Keevil of the University of Southampton is the senior author of a important paper on the rapid inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 on copper surfaces. This paper reports that SARS-CoV-2, the cause of the current COVID-19 pandemic, is inactivated in as little as one minute by copper alloy C110 (99.90% Cu).
The paper that was published on January 2, 2021, in bioRxiv, a rapid publication service with only editor's approval. This fast method of publishing was selected in order to communicate the ability of copper to quickly inactivate this virus in a timely manner. Readers are encouraged to recommend that copper alloys be deployed in the fight against COVID-19.
In addition, a new paper containing these findings and results will be submitted to another journal to undergo the more rigorous peer review process.
