How do bacteria and viruses differ?

The biggest difference is that bacteria are living things, but viruses are not. Bacteria are relatively complex unicellular organisms that survive under extreme conditions and can reproduce through cell division. Viruses are much larger than bacteria and need a host to survive and reproduce. Viruses infect their host and infiltrate their genetic information. Viruses reprogram the host's cell, which then produces new viruses.

What methods are there to fight bacteria and viruses?

The most commonly used method for controlling bacteria and viruses is sterilisation and disinfection. Sterilisation is usually caused by influences such as heat, steam or radiation. Disinfection is often carried out by chemical means that reduce the microbes to a minimum so that they are harmless.

How exactly do viralProtect 6-Month Protective Masks work?

Our viralProtect PRO Face Mask self disinfects as you wear it, preventing harmful particles from sticking around. By using antimicrobial Livinguard Technology which prevents harmful microbes from growing, our protective face mask guards you against possible infections.
