Fabric Kills Avian Flu

Fabric Kills Avian Flu Virus (Tokyo Asahi Shimbun) “A newly developed fabric destroys the avian flu virus and could prove an effective means to block the spread of new strains of influenza,” reports the Asahi Shimbun. A “team of researchers at Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine and Nisshinbo Industries Inc. said the virus-busting fabric can be used in masks and work clothes.… After the cloth was in contact with avian flu virus for 10 minutes, 99 percent of the virus was destroyed, according to the researchers.… The research team said the fabric’s virus-destroying effect lasts even after it is washed in an ordinary washing machine around 100 times.”
