Nowadays, before entering any busy public space, people are getting disinfected and taking the fever by the staff of the place, implying a big risk for them even if they are wearing masks and gloves. Therefore, this project consists on disinfecting people and taking the fever through a machine, avoiding any further risk for human. People will enter the public space disinfected, making it a safer space to avoid the spread of the virus.

What is the need are you focusing on?

Lack of security for the population, as there is no safe method to sanitize and examine people rather than using humans.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

Monarch, a Chilean clothing company. Monarch produces lingerie, mainly tights and socks. Due to Covid-19 all their shops were closed, as they are located mainly in shopping malls and busy public spaces where the first ones to start quarantine. However, Monarch was able to think out of the box and adapt the company to produce copper masks, as many of the products they already produce are made of this material because it has amazing benefits. They eliminate 99% of germs and reduce any bad smell. Moreover, even if you wash the product as many times as you want, it will not loose the copper properties. Hence copper masks were an excellent and inspiring solution of adaption and commitment to help this sanitary crisis.
