Digantika Bose, a Class 12 student hailing from Bengal’s Purba Bardhaman district claims that the mask she invented can kill the coronavirus.

The mask invented by her will be exhibited in Google’s Museum of Design Excellence in Mumbai.

The mask has three chambers- a negative ion generator that filters the dust particles in the air. The filtered air enters through the second chamber, it reaches the third one which is a chemical chamber containing a mixture of soap and water, which according to Digantika could kill the virus.

As we know that soap water kills the virus when the air reaches the third chamber, the chemical solution has the potential to kill the virus.

Digantika asserts that when a COVID-infected person uses the mask, the air they exhale will go through a similar process and the spread of the virus could potentially be stopped.

Digantika has approached the state health department for trials on the mask and it could be a potential barrier against the spread of Covid-19.

Talking about the time she invented the mask, Digantika said, “I made the mask during the first lockdown with whatever resources I had. I have always been interested in such things.”

Digantika has been thrice awarded the APJ Abdul Kalam Ignite Award. The third time she was awarded for innovating a comfortable mask that does not strain the ears.
