The Coronavirus pandemic has gripped the globe leaving more than 3 lakh people dead and more than 5 lakh infected. Amid the ongoing crisis, healthcare workers have been risking their lives to save people from the disease, the cure of which is yet to be found. However, research from the LAMP Lab at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering may provide a little help in fighting COVID-19. As we all know, masks, gowns, and other personal protective equipment (PPE) are essential for protection of healthcare workers. But to their dismay, the textiles and materials used in such items can easily absorb and carry viruses and bacteria, which in turn has the chance to spread the disease the wearer sought to contain.
