Antimicrobial treatments for medical masks or personal protective equipment to reduce respiratory disease transmission
Health Technology Wales researchers searched for evidence on the effectiveness of personal protective equipment or medical masks with antimicrobial properties (such as anti-viral coatings and additives), compared to standard products as a method of infection control. We focussed on evidence related to COVID-19 but also searched for evidence on infection control using this type of product in the context of other respiratory diseases.
