Announced that 95% of pathogenic bacteria can be killed by replacing faucets with copper
If you do not care for toilets and bathroom faucets frequently, pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli will remain attached and indirectly adhere to the hands.
However, according to a study in the UK, it seems that 95% of superbugs and pathogenic bacteria are killed when copper doorknobs and faucets are made. Currently in various places nosocomial infections and food hygiene problems are being whispered, if it is really possible to kill pathogenic bacteria by as much as 95%, it may be adopted at medical institutions and food factories.
Details are from the following.

For 10 weeks at Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham, change the doorknob, faucet, toilet and push plate to copper and compare it with the conventional ones to see how much bacteria are adhering to the surface. It seems that it turned out that bacteria had decreased by 95% compared to the conventional ones. It also said that pathogenic bacteria such as influenza virus and Escherichia coli are also included.
This is thought to be due to the effect of asphyxiation and killing bacteria by the copper component, so it seems that the possibility of indirect infection from faucets and doorknobs seems to be extremely low. Researchers commented that they would like to spread them to medical institutions and the elderly home in the future.
The table is also copper.
The push board of the door is also copper
The faucet is also copper.
The toilet seat is also copper.
In ancient Egypt, copper was used for disinfection of drinking water and disinfection of wounds, and it seems that ancient wisdom is revived in the present age.
