Engineered water nanostructures as a new technology against SARS-CoV-2

In a recent study published in the MDPI journal Nanomaterials, a research group from the United States (US) has shown the possibility of inactivating surrogates of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) on surfaces with the use of specific water nanostructures incorporated with nature-derived antimicrobials.

Hence, halting the spread of COVID-19 through environmental disinfec...
