Where the Germs Are and Where the Antimicrobial Copper Will Go

A couple of weeks ago we identified a new metal war ready to be waged against hospital-acquired infections, aka healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). And not surprisingly, only a few types of infections make up the majority of the problem, with the cost pegged at anywhere from $28 billion to #HAI #AntimicrobialNews #HealthcareInfections #antimicrobialcopper #Copper #AntimicrobialCopper #Infections #MRSA #Antimicrobial #Halo #Superbugs

Copper exerts 'halo' antimicrobial effect

Very exciting study Results from a clinical trial of antimicrobial copper touch surfaces in a neonatal intensive care unit at a Greek hospital have shown that, in addition to contamination being 90 per cent lower on the copper surfaces, they also exert a halo effect whereby non-copper surfaces up to 19 inches away exhibited a reduction in contamination of more than 70 per cent.
