Copper has been seen by many civilizations as a symbol of health and beauty in world history and identified with health for nearly 5000 years, but from the end of the 20th of century it has begun to be seen as a forgotten value till today… Now, it reminds itself again.
Copper is a natural, passive, antimicrobial material. When influenzas, bacteria like E. coli, superbugs like MRSA, or even coronaviruses land on most hard surfaces like stainless steel, iron or plastics, they can live for up to four to five days. But when they land on copper, and copper alloys like brass, they begin to die within minutes and are undetectable within hours.
According to ASM’s (American Society for Microbiology) reports, “Exposure to copper is destroying the viral genomes and irreversibly affected virus morphology, including disintegration of envelope and dispersal of surface spikes. Consequently, copper alloy surfaces could be employed in communal areas and at any mass gatherings to help reduce transmission of respiratory viruses from contaminated surfaces and protect the public health.“
When a virus or bacteria is on the surface of copper, copper ions start penetrating to cells of viruses, like bullets. The copper doesn’t just kill these pathogens; it destroys them, right down to the nucleic acids, or reproductive blueprints, inside.
