What will a post-COVID world look like?
The transportation minister of India has some thoughts. (over 70 million passengers per day)The ministry said nanostructured TiO2 functions as photoactive material is being coated on all mass transportation. “This is an eco-friendly water-based coating that kills viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungal growth and most importantly enhances indoor air quality,” the ministry said. “It is non-toxic and approved by [the] food testing laboratory of the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA), CE certified. TiO2 is considered to be a safe substance and is harmless to humans. This Titanium Dioxide coating [will be] applied on washbasins, lavatory, seats & berths, snack table, glass window, floor, virtually every surface that comes in human contact.” The effective life of this coating is expected to be a year.
