In SARS-CoV-2, the initial attachment of the virion to the host cell is initiated by interactions between the S-protein and its receptor. And, the guiding mechanism is the negative trans-membrane potential of the host cells.
"In simple terms, the S-protein makes the virus to infect by seeking negative potential. For instance, our cell walls have a negative potential, which attracts the virus and the S-protein attaches to the receptor. Our device is intended to disable S-protein by neutralising it with negatively charged electrons. This will effectively disable the virus' mechanism to infect," explained Dr Rajah Vijay Kumar, the inventor of the device.
SHyCoCan, that produces 10 to 100 trillion ions per second, is able to provide an electron density of a minimum 6 trillion per cubic centimetre at a distance of at least 12 centimetres from the canon. "The operating current is within a safe range," Kumar said. Once the device was validated, the designs have been licensed to multiple organizations (as on date 9 organizations) to manufacture this device and make it available at an affordable cost.
