New Face Mask’s that can detect Covid-19

A new face mask has been developed that can detect Covid-19 infections from an individual’s breath in roughly 90 minutes.

This works when the mask has been worn for a suitable time, in which the wearer will then press a button that penetrates a small bag filled with water which immediately will be drained through the sample collection pad, forcing any viral particles into the sensor for analysis.

The face masks are implanted with small, disposable sensors inside of the mask that can distinguish viral particles in the breath of the individual wearing the mask. The sensors may possibly be modified to identify additional infections as they can be fitted on other face masks and other garments such as lab coats, presenting a new approach to monitor exposure to a variety of pathogens or other threats particularly in a health care environment.
