Novel antiviral coating inactivates Covid variants even in dark

Scientists in Japan have developed a new antiviral coating that inactivates various types of coronavirus variants under both indoor light and darkness. The coating developed by researchers at Nara Medical University, Kanagawa Institute of Industrial Science and Technology, and Tokyo Institute of Technology is made using a combination of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and copper oxide (CuxO) compounds. They noted that the main transmission pathway of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is through droplets released by infected people into the air, adding these droplets exist on various surfaces as well.
