On Friday 16th October, Maltese authorities had ordered all nightclubs and bars to close at 11pm, in an attempt to stem the new surge in coronavirus cases, which has killed 49 people in Malta to date.

Yesterday night, numerous people in Malta seemingly ignored social distancing guidelines as they still found a way to continue enjoying themselves after 11pm.

Photos and videos show beaches across Malta packed with people socialising and drinking despite warnings from public health experts.

A reusable heated face mask for filtering and inactivating coronavirus

 - COVID-19 - Oct 23 SHARE ON:

The theory of this mask is: as a person wearing a mask breathes in and out, air flows through the mesh repeatedly, and any viral particles in the air are slowed down and discarded by mesh and high temperatures. Such a mask could be of benefit to health workers and members of the public in circumstances where social distancing would be impossible to achieve, such as a busy bus.

The design of this mask is completely new. Instead of mainly preventing the virus, it enables the virus to move through the mask, but slows it down and inactivates it.
