Corona Virus New Research - Developing The Facemask Detect Corona Virus - Bundles Of Knowledge

Researchers with Harvard and MIT are developing a face mask that can detect if the wearer is infected with coronavirus, media outlets report.

When saliva comes into contact with the fabric, whether through coughing, sneezing or just talking, a special material lining the mask will turn fluorescent if coronavirus is present, according to Harvard’s Wyss Institute.

If development is successful, the mask could be a powerful new tool against the virus, allowing for faster detection, and potentially greater accuracy, James Collins, an MIT professor of bioengineering involved with the project, told Business Insider.

“As we open up our transit system, you could envision it being used in airports as we go through security, as we wait to get on a plane,” Collins said. “You or I could use it on the way to and from work. Hospitals could use it for patients as they come in or wait in the waiting room as a prescreen of who’s infected.”
