“Protector”Mask / medical equipment


A new type of coronavirus has spread rapidly in Wuhan, China recently. Hundreds of millions of Chinese have put on masks to prevent the virus. However, the use of masks by the naked eye is not able to distinguish whether the virus, if these masks are not properly handled, the virus will spread further!
With a single press, the "protector" can display the symbol of "X"
X" is treated with disinfectant, which further reduces the possibility of virus transmission. Especially in Africa, the Middle East and other regions where the awareness of protection is weak and infectious diseases are frequent, "protectors" reduce the secondary transmission.
