Covid-19 spreads

How Covid-19 spreads

COVID-19 can easily spread between people, especially indoors and poorly ventilated spaces. When an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks loudly, up to millions of invisible virus particles are released into the surroundings via respiratory droplets, where they can remain infectious for days. While the larger droplets settle on all nearby surfaces, smaller droplets can remain suspended for up to 20 minutes in the air or up to 48 hours on surfaces indoors. Others can catch COVID-19 when these infected droplets get into their mouth, nose or eyes.

The Coronavirus

Coronaviruses are tiny structures that are invisible to the naked eye. They consist of Spike Protein covering their outer surface

These spikes attach to the negatively charged walls of a host cell that forms a bridge that enables the virus to enter the host cell and thus infects it.

As per research papers,* the technology to contain coronavirus lies in disabling this bridge - the S-Protein of the virus.

Research exposes new vulnerability in SARS-CoV-2.

Northwestern University researchers have uncovered a new vulnerability in the novel coronavirus' infamous spike protein -- illuminating a relatively simple, potential treatment pathway.

The spike protein contains the virus' binding site, which adheres to host cells and enables the virus to enter and infect the body. Using nanometer-level simulations, the researchers discovered a positively charged site (known as the polybasic cleavage site) located 10 nanometers from the actual binding site on the spike protein. The positively charged site allows strong bonding between the virus protein and the negatively charged human-cell receptors.

Leveraging this discovery, the researchers designed a negatively charged molecule to bind to the positively charged cleavage site. Blocking this site inhibits the virus from bonding to the host cell.

"Our work indicates that blocking this cleavage site may act as a viable prophylactic treatment that decreases the virus' ability to infect humans," said Northwestern's Monica Olvera de la Cruz, who led the work.

Maybe we've already answered your question, here are our FAQs


What is FORBES CORONAGUARD POWERED BY SHYCOCAN & What does it do?  

Coronaguard is a revolutionary virulence prevention device that attenuates & disables 99.9% of corona family of viruses and prevents it’s spread in the enclosed spaces.

How does it work?  

The innovative technology ‘physically attenuates’ the homing mechanism on the virus and prevents infectivity. The technology is based on well-known principles of physics “Photon Mediated Electron Emission” (PMEE) that disables the S protein in the virus so that it cannot attach itself to human cells, thus preventing the infectivity.

Does it Kill Coronavirus?  

FORBES CORONAGUARD POWERED BY SHYCOCAN attenuates the corona family of viruses. It simply disables it, from attaching and infecting the host cells.

How many hours should I keep it on? What is the electricity consumption?  

The device is designed for continuous use, it is recommended to be ON for continuous protection. The power consumption is 30 W.

Does it use any chemicals?  

The CORONAGUARD does not use any chemicals. It does not ionize the air nor does it produce any ozone.
