THE FIBER AND THE VIRUS
The novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) will keep scientists busy for a very long time. New findings are constantly being made. In the fall of 2020, for example, researchers from the Australian Science Research Organisation (CSIRO) found that the virus is 'extremely robust' at a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and can survive for 28 days at this temperature on smooth surfaces such as smartphone displays. On porous surfaces such as cotton, survival ranges from 14 days to less than 16 hours, depending on the temperature.
Blankets from Ask the Fox don't give the Corona virus a chance. The PyroTex® fiber we use was the first textile fiber in the world to show a 99.57% activity (99% after 14 seconds) against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This result was confirmed by an independent ISO certified laboratory according to ISO 18184:2019.
This means that with our blankets you not only protect yourself, but also those around you. This is especially important in environments such as cafes, nursing homes or hospitals, where many different people use blankets.
