Researchers tackle the surface transmission of COVID-19 in new partnership

A project to develop surface treatments that can provide long-lasting protection against the COVID-19 virus has been launched at the University of Birmingham.

Funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, the research will see the development of new antiviral sprays, films, and other products. These can be delivered via additives in existing commercial products, such as detergents, or integrated with current packaging processes, forming an invisible and long-lasting film of sub-micron thickness. Unlike existing disinfectants, the formulations will be designed to both capture the aerosol droplets and inactivate the virus.
