We’ve gone a long way from the early days of the pandemic when folks were finding… um, unique ways to protect themselves from COVID exposure. Not only are N95 masks now widely available for purchase, but researchers have been hard at work developing even more sophisticated masks to guard against pathogens.
Scientists in China have created a new face mask that can tell if you’ve been exposed to respiratory viruses like the coronavirus or flu. In a paper published Monday in the journal Matter, the authors say that their mask can detect virus exposure after a 10 minute conversation with an infected individual. The kicker: It can also alert the wearer via an app on their phone.
This is obviously incredibly helpful for a number of reasons. For one, its wearer can isolate and test themselves once they’re aware of exposure—thereby preventing further spread. And it affords an extra layer of warning for anyone who is immunocompromised or lives with someone who is.
