in Hong Kong, refused to reveal the composition, operation and other important details about MAP-1. With this innovative tool should not be considered a “destroyer” that COVID-19 – the disinfectant belongs to the tools of a new generation, the development of which took more than a dozen years and, therefore, the commercial value of it is enormous. The University said only that it is a coating with active properties, presenting a threat to all types of viruses within three months after application.
