Meet Prof. Safraz K Niaz who has invented a coronavirus killing spray in Uganda
The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga yesterday Monday March 16,2020 told Parliament that a Ugandan-made spray that instantly kills viruses, including coronavirus (COVID-19),will soon be on the market.
She says this spray is not coronavirus treatment/cure , it is an alcohol based sanitizer that instantly kills the coronavirus.
Parliament was yesterday holding a special sitting where the different Ministries were presenting their Ministerial Policy statements. Kadaga while making her communication to MPs on Monday morning said the spray is expected to get on the market next week.
She says that an American inventor, Prof. Safraz K. Niaz, “was in Uganda over the weekend and donated the patent, free of charge to Uganda”. Kadaga told the MPs during a debate on the coronavirus impact that there is hope the spray will help check spread of the virus in Uganda.
He has teamed up with a Ugandan biochemist, Mathias Magoola, of DEI Group in Luzira, a city suburb.
