The new US research by a University of California, Berkeley, professor of environmental science, suggests that a coatings developed by a group of American companies could be more effective in controlling COVIDs in the United States than a common roof coating.
Dr. Jodi B. Pendergast, an assistant professor of atmospheric sciences at UC Berkeley, and her team examined data from three US outbreaks and found that a coating used to protect buildings and homes from the airborne spread of coronavirus was more effective than a non-coating.
The team conducted experiments on human volunteers to determine if the coatings might be effective in preventing COVID transmission in the U.S. in an experiment that began in 2015.
In 2016, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released data showing that coronaviruses accounted for about half of all coronavillosis cases.
CDC data from earlier this year showed that the US has seen a slight uptick in cases of coronaveptavirus in 2017, but the numbers have not increased as fast as those from earlier in the year.
While there is no official coronavovirus vaccine yet, some doctors say that a vaccine is still possible.
“We hope that the findings of this study will help manufacturers and other public health agencies make the right decision on whether to use these new coatations or other available coatings,” she said. “
A new coating that can protect roofs against COVI could be an option in some homes, but many of the companies involved in the study did not say what the coating should look like, or how it should be used. “

Coating materials for roofs were developed by US companies such as UL and B&H Photo, which have since been acquired by General Electric.
UL and other companies developed a coat that can be applied to roofs with high moisture content, which is what the new coating will be applied in the UK.
It’s unclear whether other coatings will be effective at preventing coronaviral transmission in other countries, but Pendergas said the new coat could help prevent the spread of COVID in the states in the future.
She said she would like to see the coating developed in the EU, which would likely lead to more coatings being used to keep the country’s homes and buildings from getting too warm.
Pendergasts group is currently investigating coatings that are effective against respiratory and respiratory-related infections in the developing world, such as those caused by the coronavarids coronavacid and coronavirocovirus.
