As schools, colleges, and other educational institutes are reopening, there are still serious concerns about the safety of students, teachers, and staff, especially since children are not eligible for the vaccine yet.
Besides the standard protocols of hand hygiene, double vaccination of all staff, regular disinfection of spaces, technology can play an important role in ensuring up to 99.9% protection from transmission of the virus as new strains, mutations and fear about a potential third wave.
Several educational bodies such as All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), National Skill Development Corporation, etc. have embraced the technology of Shycocan, which is the “world’s first virus attenuation device that neutralizes all viruses 24×7 to ensure infection-free spaces”.
“The Shycocan device was developed after a decade of research and uses a revolutionary new Photon Mediated Electron Emission Technology. Each device covers an area of up to 1,000 square feet of uninterrupted enclosed spaces. Schools and other educational Institutes can simply use more devices for larger areas like assembly halls, cafeterias, staff rooms. It is a CE Class 1 device that already conforms to the regulatory requirements of many countries globally. Several international schools across the UAE and Europe have also installed the device in their campuses,” stated a statement from the company.
Commenting on the technology, Alok Sharma, chief executive officer at Shycocan Corporation, said: “The virus has taken away children’s childhoods. There is as much learning that happens on playgrounds as in classrooms. But given that children aren’t yet vaccinated, we must give them safety and the confidence to be able to hug a friend without worrying. The Shycocan disables the entire family of Coronavirus and all its variants, mutations with up to 99.9% efficacy in enclosed spaces.”
Shycocan is the first in line of viral defence systems and is among the most tested devices for both efficacy and safety across multiple accredited laboratories worldwide. And it has consistently excelled in all the tests. The Shycocan Corporation hopes to help children get back to school safely and help bring life back to normal, the company further said.
Els Noor, a teacher at Waterlands School, said: “When I enter the classroom at the start of the day, my pupils already have turned on the device as they know how important it is for our safety. We have a Shycocan device in every classroom, except for one. In that particular classroom without a Shycocan there was a Coronavirus outbreak. Shycocan creates a safe environment, and we can work normally without fear or concern about the virus. I strongly suggest that the government should hand out Shycocans to all schools.”
