As a result of the joint efforts of some academics, science centers and companies in Portugal, it was announced that the first mask to neutralize the virus that caused Covid-19 was produced.
After the coronavirus pandemic broke out, studies to prevent the spread of the virus began in all parts of the world. Although these studies generally focus on drugs and vaccines, different products are also produced. Among them are masks.
