Copper-coated doorknobs are the latest weapon in the world’s fight to control the spread of COVID-19.

Copper has broad anti-microbial properties and has already been installed in some hospitals around the world to stop the spread of antibiotic-resistant superbugs. There is preliminary evidence that copper can destroy SARS-CoV-2 as well.
