International tests confirm CopperMask can deactivate coronaviruses by up to 99% in just 2 hours

(The Philippine Star) - July 7, 2021 - 12:00pm

MANILA, Philippines — Taking the challenge of ensuring the health and safety of Filipinos during pandemic, the All-NEW CopperMask Copper Strand-Infused Facial Masks which was earlier tested to have the capacity to block and kill common bacteria and viruses has been confirmed to have the ability to deactivate coronaviruses by up to 99% in just two hours.*

In a test conducted by Shanghai WEIPU Chemical Technology Service Co., Ltd. – an ILAC-MRA/CNAS certified research-based testing laboratory facility in Shanghai, China (certified in accordance to ISO/IEC standards), CopperMask Antimicrobial Film was subjected to an anti-viral assay test to determine if it has the potential ability or capacity to weaken coronaviruses.  

The type of virus that was used in the anti-viral test was GX-P2V (Guanxu Pangolin Coronavirus), a type of coronavirus that falls into the same lineage of the SARS-Cov2 obtained from Pangolins. Pangolins are ant-eating mammals that are often used in traditional Chinese medicine.

It is believed that SARS-Cov2 might be of "probable pangolin origin." The Coronavirus GX-P2V has more than 90% similarity in terms of genome sequence and 92.2% structure resemblance to the SARS-Cov2 or more commonly known as COVID-19 Virus.

Are coronavirus GX-P2V and COVID-19 the same?

The SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 virus, the root cause of the global pandemic, is a highly contagious infectious disease.

It is for this reason and for safety purposes that many testing facilities that develop therapeutics, disinfectants and even vaccines targeting SARS-CoV-2 have widely accepted the use of GX-P2V as an ideal substitute due to its higher degree of affinity to the actual COVID-19 virus (amino acid sequence, ace receptor similarity, etc.).

The test has proven that the CopperMask Antimicrobial Film has the capacity to weaken the viral activity rate of coronaviruses by up to 99.07% after initial incubation period of two hours and a rate of up to 99.15% after twenty-four hours.

CopperMask also underwent extensive clinical tests from reputable research testing facilities in China and Korea to test its efficacy and safety on common bacteria and viruses and to detect presence of harmful chemicals and heavy metals.

The following were the certified test results:

  • CopperMask BLOCKS 99.99% of common bacteria and viruses**
     
  • CopperMask KILLS 99.99% of bacteria***
     
  • CopperMask contains NO harmful chemicals and heavy metals****

The COVID-19 outbreak has tremendously changed the way people live. After lockdown, people have searched for ways to survive and protect themselves from the virus while adapting to the new normal. Wearing face masks is one of them.
