How Forbes Coronaguard Terminates the Spread of COVID 19

Introduction

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a tremendous loss of human life and disrupted the social and economic aspects of human existence. Caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the coronavirus has taken the lives of millions and continues to cause mass destruction, and poses a serious challenge to public health, food systems, and the means of earning a livelihood. 

According to data provided by the WHO, millions of people remain on the verge of falling into extreme poverty. Further, more than 690 million people are undernourished, and the number is estimated to escalate by 132 million by the end of 2021 [1].

COVID-19 is easily transmitted between humans, especially in enclosed or poorly ventilated areas. When an infected person coughs, speaks, sneezes, or breathes, up to millions of invisible virus particles are released into the environment via respiratory droplets, where they can stay infectious for days. COVID-19 can be contracted by others when infectious droplets enter their mouth, nose, or eyes [2].

As of October 29, 2021, more than 246 million cases have been reported worldwide. India ranks second after the United States of America, followed by Brazil in the countries with the highest death toll and infections[3].

With the highly mutated omicron Covid-19 variant spreading rapidly across the globe affecting 23 countries already, the risk and exposure to this dreaded virus have increased manifold. This new variant has reinstated travel and border restrictions after they had been lifted by various governments in 2021.

Being thoroughly informed on the sickness and how the virus spreads is the most effective method to avoid and slow down transmission.

 

What Is the Forbes Coronaguard?

Coronaguard powered by Shycocan from  Eureka Forbes is a ground-breaking virulence prevention device that attenuates and disables 99.9% of the corona family of viruses, preventing their propagation in confined environments. It promises to be your family's best bet against the Covid-19 viruses and the new omicron virus, which has more than 50 different mutations. 

 In addition to the sanitary measures taken during the Covid-19 outbreak, the installation of the Forbes Coronaguard adds to your protection against the deadly virus. 

It also serves as a complementary option, in conjunction with the use of personal protection equipment (PPE) when needed, to alleviate the constraints of indefinite social separation.

What could be the tip of the iceberg can be avoided with the installation of Coronaguard and the environment’s safety taking existing preventive measures.

 

How Does It Work?

The novel technique 'physically attenuates' the virus's homing mechanism. It is based on well-known physics concepts known as 'Photon Mediated Electron Emission' (PMEE), which inhibits the S protein in the virus, preventing it from attaching to human cells and hence reducing infectivity.

Forbes Coronaguard Powered by Shycocan reduces the coronavirus family of viruses. It merely prevents it from adhering to and infecting host cells. The device is intended for continuous usage, and it is advised to keep it turned on for uninterrupted protection. The maximum power usage is 30 W. The CORONAGUARD employs no chemicals, and it neither ionizes the air nor produces ozone[4].

 

Tested for Performance

Forbes Coronaguard – powered by Shycocan, has been tested in several reputable Indian and international laboratories [4]. 

The following electrical and environmental safety tests are mentioned below :

  • Underwriters Laboratory (India) performed a safety test on home and comparable electrical appliances, proving that Coronaguard was electrically safe to use.
  • SGS, UAE, conducted another test to verify the limitation of the use of certain hazardous compounds in electrical and electronic equipment. RoHS – environmental safety – was guaranteed by the test.
  • EVA Associates Australia conducted an 8-hour Ozone Generation Monitoring test to ensure the safety of the environment.
  • Shreis Scalene Therapeutics LLC, USA, completed an 8-hour Ozone generation monitoring test to guarantee environmental safety.

The human and animal safety tests are mentioned below :

The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (Assam), investigated the vitality and toxicity of human alveolar basal epithelial cells. They discovered that the cell viability was comparable with controlled cells and concluded that Coronaguard was safe to use for human beings (ensuring human cell safety).

Madras University, Chennai, conducted a cell viability assay using Vero cells (African green monkey kidney epithelial cells). There was no discernible change in the viability of control and exposed cells, and it was deemed safe to use for companion animals (ensuring animal cell safety).

Several performance studies have shown that Coronaguard is efficient at inactivating 99.9% of the Corona Family of viruses.

  • Coronaguard was tested with Equine Arteritis Virus – at Laboratorios de Especialidades Inmunológicas (LEI), Mexico, and 99.9% disinfection was achieved in 15 minutes.
  • TNO, Europe tests shown that Coronaguard suppresses the SARS -CoV-2 virus on stainless steel surfaces by 94.9 per cent.
  • Coronaguard was also tested with MS2 IAPMO-Aquadiagnostics, which revealed disinfection effectiveness of 99.994 per cent in confined environments in 60 minutes.

 

Where Can the Coronaguard by Forbes Be Installed?

The device may be securely deployed in any human-inhabited location, whether big or tiny enclosed places. Coronaguard assists in the establishment of 'safe zones' in households, health care institutions, grocery and vital stores, restaurants and hotels, schools, universities, places of worship, residential, corporate, industrial, and athletic situations.

The Coronaguard is presently available in a single form that can cover an area of 1,000 square feet (10,000 Cubic ft). The package includes a wall mounting bracket that is simple to install. If partitions or walls separate the rooms, separate units are required. The device features a green indicator bulb in the front, indicating operating to create safe zones in the application area.

Coronaguard should be wall-mounted in a room where children cannot access it. It does not interact with any electrical equipment and has been tested and cleared following CE Marking regulations. The product is suitable for use in air-conditioned spaces.

 

The Endnote

The Coronagaurd neutralizes the S protein in the virus, preventing it from attaching to human cells and reducing infectivity.

Over the last 38 years, Eureka Forbes has been at the forefront of India's health efforts, becoming synonymous with clean drinking water and cleaning products. We have been safeguarding Indians from deadly germs, viruses, and other microbes for many years. As a result, there is confidence associated with our name. This product has undergone extensive testing, and the test results demonstrate the device's efficacy without a shadow of a doubt.
