Chile’s Mining Minister promotes use of copper to fight covid-19
Mining - Chile’s Mining Minister Baldo Prokurica ordered that the building that houses his office be disinfected using quaternary ammonium enhanced with copper nanoparticles. This, in an effort to avoid the spread of covid-19.
Both on his Twitter channel and on local TV, Prokurica said that the solution being used was developed by Chilean company Aintech.
“For a long time we have been proposing the use of copper, a Chilean product that is a powerful antimicrobial agent, to back efforts to stop the spread of bacteria, viruses, and fungi in places like hospitals,” Prokurica said.
