According to the “Medical Express” scientific site, on Tuesday, researchers from the university led by the director of its superconductivity center, Zhifeng Rin, participated in the development of the air conditioner, in addition to Munther Hourani, CEO of “Medstar” company concerned with developing medical projects.Details of the new innovation were published in the scientific journal “Today Physics”.
The researchers conducted a laboratory experiment that showed 99.8 percent of the corona viruses in the air were killed, after turning on the conditioner, according to Sky News.
The conditioner uses nickel foam in the process of trapping viruses and heating its temperature, in preparation for “killing it”.
Researchers believe this innovation can be used in airplanes, offices, schools, and other overcrowded facilities.
They point out that the new air conditioner limits the outbreak of the Corona virus, which causes “Covid-19”, which is sweeping the world, and has so far killed more than half a million people.
The innovation comes in conjunction with the World Health Organization’s talk of evidence that the corona virus could spread through very small particles in the air.
The recognition comes after a group of scientists urged the organization to update its guidelines on how the spread of respiratory disease, such as Covid-19, was caused.
The New York Times reported Saturday that 239 scientists in 32 countries presented the evidence in an open letter to the international organization.
In the evidence, they said, they found that particles that came out with exhalation could infect people who inhaled them.
