HCM City (VNS/VNA) - Wakamono, a Ho Chi Minh City-based company that specialises in producing nano biotech materials, has invented a medical mask that is capable of killing more than 99 percent of both gram-negative and -positive bacteria, and enveloped and non-enveloped virus.

It has been approved by the European CE and allowed to be labelled on boxes. The company has also registered it in the US.

It is already sold in Italy, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, and the UAE besides Vietnam through official distributors. The company is planning to soon enter Germany, France and Spain after applying for testing licences in those countries since despite the common CE certification, it has to retest and apply for licences in individual EU countries.

In the healthcare industry alone, according to Fortune business insights, the global market for medical clothing was worth 63.3 billion USD in 2019 and is forecast to reach 99.9 billion USD by 2027. COVID-19 has created new opportunities in the market.

Medical protective clothing used in medical facilities including surgical gowns, towels, nets, protective masks, aprons, boots, coats, eye wear, and caps.

Factors such as the increasing number of surgeries and increasing rate of hospital infections are also those that drive this market./.
