From the time when coronavirus pandemic started in 2019 December, researchers have been attempting to foster vaccines and different instruments that can assist in the battle with offing Covid. Presently, Japanese scientists have created masks that can identify the virus under bright light.
As reported by Wion, Yasuhiro Tsukamoto the lead researcher along with his team at Kyoto Prefectural University in western Japan have fostered a mask covered with ostrich antibodies. Past explores have demonstrated that ostriches have solid obstruction against this virus. The scientists asked some test subjects to wear masks which was covered with ostrich antibodies. In the wake of wearing the mask for eight hours, the masks were given over to the scientists who then, at that point, taken out the filters. It was then splashed with a chemical that sparkles under the UV light in case the virus is available on the surface.
After focusing the light, the filters that had been worn by Covid positive individuals, showed sparkling element around the nose and mouth surface. These masks were first attempted by Tsukamoto himself. It was announced that he too has been infected by the lethal coronavirus after he detected similar shining elements in the ostrich antibody-covered mask that he was wearing. To affirm his dread, he went through a standard test which returned as positive for COVID-19. Presently, his group is expecting to foster masks of trend setting innovation that can sparkle consequently even without extraordinary lighting, in case the masks have virus particles on the surface.
Till then, at that point, the analysts are naming these masks as one of the minimal expense methods of testing coronavirus at home. This comes when the world is attempting to battle a becoming new variant of coronavirus — Omicron. Specialists have guaranteed that the new variant is more contagious than the Delta variant yet aims less extreme disease than the already prevailing variant.
