St Kitts and Nevis is the first country in the Caribbean to receive a nanotechnology coating to destroy Covid-19 that can last up to 90 days on surfaces, said Dr Theodore Hanley, who is a US board-certified anaesthesiologist. He made the announcement at National Emergency Operations Centre Covid-19 daily briefing.
“Through our partners, we have secured a non-toxic advanced nanotechnology coating that can last on surfaces for up to 90 days. The technology creates a mechanical non-chemical barrier that no micro bacteria or virus can live on. I am proud to announce that the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is the first country in the Caribbean to receive this technology which arrived recently,” said Dr Hanley.
The National Emergency Management Agency will also be presented with the technology.
Dr Hanley said that this technology is widely used by “large public and private US and International organisations.”
