Most countries in the world are grappling with the novel coronavirus, COVID -19. This virus spreads mainly by droplets produced as a result of coughing or sneezing by an infected person. This can happen in two ways – direct close contact with COVID-19 patients or Indirect contact, where the droplets survive on various surfaces like clothes, staircase railings, elevators, meeting rooms, cafeteria, handrails/handles, call buttons, etc. for many days.
To reduce the risk of community transfer of COVID-19, there is a pressing need for mass sanitization/sterilization of the public places including the bus stops, railway platforms, parks, malls, religious places, roads, airports, etc.
There are no specific vaccines or medicines currently available for COVID-19. However, there are several ongoing clinical trials evaluating potential treatments. Thus, the best way to prevent yourself from catching the virus is to take proper precautions.
The key to this challenge is making our public places safe using the mass sterilization and virus inactivation technologies. In this context there is need to have a high scale production system in place. While engineering firms could consider switching some manufacturing to help ramp production of state of art equipment’s and technologies, it will still take longer to manufacture. Thus, we are looking for an existing, proven technology that can be rapidly adapted to be built locally or at large scale.
The following report talks about technological innovations in various types of mass sanitization devices. The report discusses the different types like UV based sanitization, Disinfecting tunnels, drones and more. The main objective of this report is to provide an overview of different types of innovations around the mass sanitization domain.
