How copper and copper base alloys such as Tungum can help stop the spread of COVID-19 Recently, the Copper Alliance released a web-post with the International Copper Association's response to COVID-19 with the following information: "Frequently touched surfaces made from copper and copper alloys are naturally antimicrobial and self-sanitizing and can assist in slowing the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, in current and future outbreaks."

It concluded that the use of copper alloys, such as Tungum, could reduce the amount of micro organisms contained on them by 90-100% when compared to standard materials.
