In the context of the coronavirus epidemic, great responsibility lies with the authorities. How quickly doctors can cope with mass morbidity depends on their decisions. Self-isolation mode is one of the most effective means. In addition, the government controls the financing of medicine, the organization of border control and much more.
Officials should not only make the right decisions, but also be a model for their fellow citizens. When, during an online meeting between Vladimir Putin and the governors, journalists noticed a strange badge on the jacket of the presidential spokesman, they immediately asked what it was. It turned out that in this way Dmitry Peskov is protected from the coronavirus.
What is a badge virus blocker
To find out the contents of the badge and the principles of its operation, we find instructions for it . In a plastic container is an aluminum perforated box with zeolite and sodium chlorite. If the former is a mineral with sorbent properties, the latter, with slight heating, decomposes into water and chlorine dioxide - a poisonous gas that dissolves in water. Such a solution is used as an ingredient in disinfectants. Manufacturers assure that the poison in their product is 5 g.
Badge sellers claim that this device was submitted to the court of Japanese scientists in 2013 and received a certificate. The document number is not indicated, there is no link to the institution that was involved in the study of the effects of the badge on human health.
Japanese badge instruction virus blocker
Russian scientists refute the words that the effectiveness of the badge-blocker has been proven. In 2017, the ITMO National Research Institute in St. Petersburg developed an analogue of the Japanese apparatus and did not hesitate to present to the public the details of the studies that were conducted.
How the badge-blocker works viruses
During the experiment, a sorbent impregnated with chlorine dioxide was placed in a closed container containing a number of viruses, bacteria and fungi dangerous to humans, with a volume of 1 m3. After 17 days, evaporating gas filled the hermetically sealed vessel and killed all pathogens. If the coronavirus were in the collection of malicious victims of experience, then it would also die. If some sadist would push a living person there, the unhappy, like the coronavirus, would expect death.
The use of detergents containing chlorine derivatives is recommended in the absence of people. The badge is not able to harm its owner, since the active substance cannot reach that concentration in the air in order to become dangerous. Remember the smell of bleach, it is unpleasant, but harmless.
Naturally, in the instructions from the manufacturer and distributors of goods through online stores, there are no contraindications at the chlorine dioxide storage, all “research results” have the nature of unfounded statements, apply a badge can be used for individual protection against bacteria, viruses and allergens floating in the air.
Additional information from manufacturers
The manufacturer of badges at its official the website guarantees that their product nen solid chlorine dioxide ClO2. Everyone who studied chemistry at school knows that it is a gas that can only be converted to a liquid state by freezing. How "inventors" made it harden, science does not know.
The level of medical literacy allowed badge traders to write that their miracle cure destroys bad odors. Everyone knows how bleach smells, which is washed in public places. If the unit does not have this aroma, there are doubts about the presence of a substance that is indicated as active.
Commercial interests for badge manufacturers are higher than concern for human life and health. Traders have recommended to cling on a toy to those who observe a fever. Elevated body temperature is one of the symptoms of COVID-19 infection. If the infection has entered the body, you need to see a doctor, and not ask plastic amulets for protection.
Errors in choosing a prophylactic can and high-ranking people. It is a pity that they put their dubious practices on public display. Dmitry Peskov, we give him his due, honestly admitted that he does not know the details about the dyeing on his jacket.
In Russian pharmacies, a badge-blocker is presented as a tool with unproven effectiveness. For some reason, little is said about the harmful effects of this “invention”. Those who believe in the miraculous properties of the badge will not follow the hygiene rules that are guaranteed to protect against coronavirus. As mentioned above, at the first sign of malaise, a naive buyer will continue self-medication, risking just not having time to go to the hospital.
Everyone can make the final decision on the purchase. Before you do it, read the information that is presented in open sources. Amulets and signs have not saved anyone yet, at the first symptoms of the disease, contact a professional doctor.
