How Israel is fighting the pandemic: new breakthrough technologies are being prepared for use.


Israel remains temporarily closed to tourists due to the pandemic. New technologies that scientists are working hard on will allow us to quickly detect a threat to the safety of the health of citizens, respond to it in a timely manner and take another step towards opening borders. 

 

One recent development that deserves attention is the SonoMask reusable antiviral face mask. It is coated with zinc oxide nanoparticles, which, according to the developers, destroy bacteria, fungi and viruses and reduce the risk of infection and disease transmission, neutralizing 99.34% of viruses.

 

The Israeli fabric manufacturer Sonovia is developing a novelty. According to the test results, it was proved that the mask is able to neutralize traces of SARS-COV-2 within 30 minutes after contact with the fabric, while maintaining its protective properties for 55 washing cycles. 

 

“Thanks to such outstanding developments, people will be able to feel protected and completely safe. Israel has staked on technology before, and now continues to amaze the world with its breakthrough solutions,” commented Vladimir Shklyar, Director of the Department of the Ministry of Tourism of Israel in the Russian Federation and the CIS, Advisor to the Embassy of the State of Israel in the Russian Federation.


Israel will also become the first country in the world to receive rapid coronavirus tests, the results of which will be available in 23 minutes. These test kits are prepared by the American company Visby Medical and will first have to be tested at the Institute for Biological Research and then licensed by the Israeli Ministry of Health.
