Certification system for indoor environments which adopt advanced strategies to make them safe from the transmission of Covid-19

This concept ultimately concerns a way to make indoor environments "pandemic safe", preferably under a yet non-existent certification or "seal of approval" system.

I will begin this presentation with a discussion of the existence of virucidal coatings in the perspective of their original intent; their application on various surfaces in the environment. I will also be discussing the types of handles that are encountered... more »

CMV Vaccine

If a person has contracted Covid-19, it would be ideal if a person's body could fight it off and not progress to a severe illness. The body relies heavily on the thymus in this regard.

The thymus has a major role in the immune system. However, as a person ages, it gradually decreases in size, contributing to the difficulty which older people have in fighting off infections. Furthermore, its status of a defender against... more »

Thymus regeneration

If a person has contracted Covid-19, it would be ideal if a person's body could fight it off and not progress to a severe illness. There can be a number of factors that may help or hinder the body in vanquishing it quickly, among them: genetics; the presence or absence of other illnesses (i.e., diabetes, heart disease, etc.); whether or not a vaccine had been previously injected; and age. Genetics can't be changed, co-existing... more »

Mobile devices for countering airborne Covid-19

In considering current options to protect against the indoor airborne transmission of Covid-19, in settings where people regularly transit, the current available options are: (1) Masks or respirators (being commonly used); (2) Stationary placements of negative ion generators; UVC light or Far UVC light (none of which have yet become commonplace); and (3) Personal (wearable) devices emitting negative ions and/or Far UVC... more »

Headset negative ions

The following concept, involving the use of negative ions (created by small, wearable negative ion generators), has the potential to greatly limit the airborne transmission of Covid-19 within indoor settings. More specifically, it involves the immediate air space of a person's mouth and nose while indoors.

In a nutshell, the negative ions weigh down any particulates in the air (including microorganisms) and cause them... more »

Improvements in UVC and Far UVC approaches to help reduce the airborne transmission of Covid-19.

By now, many who have been following the development of Covid-19 have become aware that UVC light (or Germicidal UV) can kill it, on surfaces and in the air. Since UVC light is harmful to humans, it is difficult to see it having a role in settings where people can easily be exposed to it. Thus, I will not be discussing any attempts to clean person-level surfaces by UVC light while people may be in the vicinity. However,... more »

Reducing the susceptibility to Covid-19 infection with well-research natural components

It is common knowledge by now that a large proportion of the people who have contracted Covid-19 and were severely incapacitated, or died, often had concurrent medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, a history of smoking and so forth. It is wise counsel for people currently with such conditions to take great caution when venturing out, encountering other people or entering new environments so that they may... more »

Sneeze Catcher

As things currently stand with Covid-19, surgical masks and N95 respirators are discussed the most with respect to reducing the airborne spread of Covid-19. Despite their predominance in both discussions and actual use, it has to be remembered that surgical masks are intended to protect the environment and that it is the N95 respirators which are more protective of the wearer. The latter option has a disadvantage in that... more »

COVID-19 Solution: Here is a Full Face Mask Respirator Option That Will Enable all American's to get Back to Work

PURPOSE:
Regarding pandemic Coronavirus COVID-19, we need to get back to work, but instead of providing a mechanism to do so, we are paying $2 Trillion for a problem that could be fixed at a cost of $6.5 - $15.8 billion dollars. Below we discuss a full face mask respirator capability that would enable Americans to get back to work at a fraction of the cost.

Face "shields" composed solely of air curtains and Far UVC light to reduce the airborne transmission of Covid-19.

I am proposing a blending of existing technologies to create a hopefully lightweight device which could enhance the protective capabilities of N95 respirators against Covid-19 and perhaps provide sufficient protective benefits as a stand-alone. This could benefit health care providers and the general population. In addition to offering protection, it would have an advantage of not impeding the breathing (as the N95 respirator... more »

POTENTIAL FOR TRANSMISSION:
Perhaps fur is a fomite and may transfer Coronavirus (especially early shed virus). Porous surfaces are the best sources of contamination and fur is very porous. Also, regarding zoonotic transmission, it is well known that cats and dogs contract some species of Coronavirus, and I've collected one piece of very LIMITED evidence that respiratory transmission owner to dog, \[MAY be possible\].... more »

Reduce contact transmission through the use of durable, reusable gloves with a virucidal coating.

In the current situation with Covid-19, it has become difficult for people to buy hand cleansers and multiple gloves to carry along with them. Thus, when shopping and conducting other daily activities, there is a high probability that their hands will come into contact with virus laden surfaces. The same would happen even if latex gloves were worn. To resolve this situation, I invite you to first view links (below) which... more »
