The pandemic that has been with us for the past two years has changed the way people think about their health. For many, it led to a realization about how vulnerable the human immune system can be, and today, in most countries, wearing medical masks in public places has already become the norm. At the same time, there are still concerns about the effectiveness of such safeguarding measures.
But what if scientists manage to develop a ‘smart mask’ that could not only 100% protect a person from viruses, but also eliminate all negative environmental impacts? According to a Kaspersky study, 59% of healthcare workers agree that they would wear a smart mask with embedded sensors to analyze the general air quality and block pollution and viruses, following mass development, even if it is not required by government measures.
