Proof of Coppers-Cover's Effectiveness
Recent research from the Research University in Southampton, England has proven Copper-Covers can kill /Inactive a 550 viral particles per cm2 sample of SARS CoV 2 within 1 minute. The test compared the effectiveness of Copper coated 316 stainless steel against normal 316 Stainless Steel surfaces in killing/Inactivating Covid-19.
550 viral particles per cm2 is the equivalent to a standard hand transfer of Covid-19 and 5500 viral particles per cm2 is the equivalent of a droplet of moisture containing Covid-19 The results are as follows.
Proof of Coppers Benefits
There are over 600,000 peer reviewed papers have been published in English on the antimicrobial properties of copper. That number hits 2 million if you include Spanish, German and French academic validations.
The following excerpts are from a paper in Applied & Environmental Microbiology 2019. https://aem.asm.org/content/86/1/e01886-19
Over 7 million people are affected globally by healthcare associated infections each year – MRSA, E-Coli, Coronavirus to name a few. 37,000 people die due to these infections annually in Europe and over 100,000 in the US. 80% of all infections are spread by touch and one contaminated hand will go on to contaminate at least 7 other touch surfaces on average.
The material of the touch surface makes a vital difference. Harmful bugs can survive on stainless steel and plastics for days, if not weeks or months. With copper, they die within minutes as it shuts down the cells biochemistry and physiology. That is why quite a number of hospitals around the world have begun to make the changeover to copper touch surfaces.

“Antimicrobial copper surfaces have been shown to have intrinsic and continuous broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity that is expected to remain in effect for the product’s lifetime.”
“Antimicrobial copper surfaces used in healthcare settings include surface components made from copper alloys and hard surface materials infused with copper oxides, both of which exert antimicrobial activity by releasing copper ions at concentrations toxic to microorganisms. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are meant to supplement standard cleaning procedures to reduce hospital acquired infection risk. Their intended benefits include sustained antimicrobial effects independent of human compliance, wear resistance, environmental friendliness and recyclability, and a low risk of adverse events from copper exposure.”

“Copper touch surfaces in the clinical setting effectively reduce infection rates and save lives”
“he antimicrobial effect of copper has been known for centuries, and ongoing research is being conducted on the use of copper-coated hard and soft surfaces for reduction of microbial contamination and, subsequently, reduction of HAIs.”
