A revolutionary new plastic could to prevent bacteria and superbugs disease and illness. Scientists have a new kind of transparent, plastic wonder-wrap. They say it will drastically incidences of microbe transfer in hospitals, restaurants, kitchens, bathrooms and other places where bugs in wait. The plastic was by researchers from McMaster University in Canada. They say their material can all forms of bacteria, including superbugs like MRSA. The material is like a conventional transparent wrap to cover food. It can shrink-wrapped to places that attract bacteria, like worktops, door handles, taps, hospital equipment and food containers.
The researchers said the inspiration for their new material from the lotus plant. They attempted to the method in which the leaves of this plant water. Drops of water either on the surface of the leaves or off. Researcher Leyla Soleymani wanted to that process to the new plastic. She said: "We're structurally that plastic. This material gives us something that can be applied to all kinds of things." Another researcher, Tohid Didar, said: "We can this technology being used in all kinds of institutional and domestic settings. As the world the crisis of anti-microbial resistance, we it will become an important part of the anti-bacterial toolbox."
