ANTI-COVID 19 HANDLES

Anti-Covid 19 handles don’t exist and whoever says otherwise is lying


 


We’ve witnessed a proliferation of household objects, items and articles that – based on people’s fears – many companies have rushed to launch this year.



Unfortunately, and given a general lack of knowledge, most of these items do absolutely nothing against the threat of possible contagion, as they rely on antibacterial – rather than antiviral – protection.

There’s a big difference between viruses and bacteria: bacteria are part of living beings and viruses are not.


Viruses have no desire – in a manner of speaking – to do what they do; however, bacteria reproduce, feed and relate to each other. For our purposes, the only thing they have in common is that they need our cell machinery to reproduce.



 


Viruses are nothing more than very complex molecules that are programmed to do little more than reproduce, and both their chemical and physical properties are designed to do so.

Both bacteria and viruses may be harmful to our health, although some are also beneficial (among bacteria, the lactobacilli and, among viruses, the oncolytic viruses, for instance.)

Indeed, to date, only silver, copper and titanium have demonstrated better behaviour than aluminium or zamak when it comes to lessening exposure to Covid 19.




Antibacterial coatings – which have existed for many years – can do nothing against the possibility of viral contagion.

In fact, only keeping your hands clean and disinfecting contact surfaces with the correct biocidal products can mitigate the possibility of becoming infected.


At Navarro Azorín, we’ve never hopped on the bandwagon of confusion and half-truths: in short, there is no solution available for making a contact surface antiviral.


Our best advice: wash your hands and take good care of yourself.
