IDEA SUBMISSION IS CLOSED.

Provide an Ioniser at every ICU Bedside to reduce Doctors Viral Load

This has the effect on making the airborn virus molecules heavier and they fall away from their faces and to the floor or a collector plate.

I searched for any research and found this in Sweden https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4477231/#!po=75.0000

Which seems to confirm it works on other viruses anyway.

But I can’t get traction with anybody who could test it out over here.

I think it could save lives... Spain and Italy have lost tons of doctors thru high viral load.

So next steps would be for a virologist or who? to confirm it would have the same effect on covid-19 and then to come up with a safe, cheap design or buy existing but I’m not sure they would be powerful enough. I have emailed the Swedish professor to understand the power of the unit but no response.
