The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is transmitted through droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. Most people infected with coronavirus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness. At this time, there are no specific vaccines or treatments for COVID-19. However, taking the right precautions is the key to be safe from the disease. Everyone needs to detect the virus, get it inspected and take a cure.
Coronavirus Detection Mask
It is very important to detect the infected and get them tested for particular symptoms and then providing the cure. A coronavirus detector is a mask that can let you know if you have coronavirus symptoms. It can come in handy when you are also not sure about the indication that you might have the virus. The mask consists of an embedded biotechnology chip that can detect virus particles in human breath, sneeze, or saliva and can report the symptoms to the smartphone via Bluetooth. It records breathing activities during
the day, transmits, and then share the information with the user or medical authorities using an app.
Biotechnology and smartphone can come together and can be a lifesaver
The main component of the virus detector mask is the multi-functional biotechnology enabled chip that can detect the infection of a person infected. When that is embedded in the normal face mask, it becomes an automatic virus detecting mask. The detection can be done through Bluetooth technology connected to a smartphone app, which can show live results of the quality of breathe, saliva particles in cough and sneeze.
Technology & Life
The advanced technologies have given humans ability to create anything that can benefit mankind. The virus detection mask can be a boon to the world where it can detect the virus at an early stage, limit the spread and help in prevention, leading to a healthy human life. But, at the same time, this world needs to learn and understand that playing with nature can be disastrous as well. Respecting the surroundings, trees, water bodies, and wildlife is the need of the hour.
Stay safe, stay healthy and follow the directions given by the authorities in these difficult times.
