Considering that many pathogens, including that which causes COVID-19, can reside on surfaces of face masks for a long time, the masks themselves may be a way for diseases to spread.

• Researchers at Indiana University believe that electricity can be used to deactivate pathogens on face masks and they recently showed that an “electroceutical” fabric kills coronavirus particles on contact.

• The material, already commercialized by Vomaris, an Arizona firm and FDA cleared for the treatment of wounds, consists of an array of tiny batteries that work together to generate an electric field across a fabric.

• When moisture is present, a current is evoked within it and any pathogens within the moisture are affected.

• The technology, called V.Dox, seems to be particularly suited for coronaviruses because they use electrostatics to bind to a host and to take on an infective form.

• Sending a current through where the viral particles are attached may be disrupting these processes.

• In their laboratory tests, the Indiana team was able to kill coronaviruses within a minute of activating the V.Dox fabric.
