Northwestern is testing “super-preventive” protective film to help protect against a coronavirus coronaviruses’ virus.
The university-affiliated school is testing the film on its students, employees, and visitors at an outdoor event at the University of Illinois.
“The film will provide a great barrier to the spread of coronavirenes to our employees, students, and the public,” Northwestern president David Blatt said in a statement.
As of now, Northwestern’s new film is not a new type of protective film.
But Northwestern is testing it on students, students and staff to try to reduce the spread.
Some other universities are testing similar protective films.
Earlier this week, the University at Buffalo tested the film to see if it would reduce the risk of the coronaviral coronavillosis.
According to the Associated Press, the university said it is not sure how long the protective film will last, but it will help keep people in the U.S. safe from the virus.
As for the film, Blatt says the university wants to test it on the public before it is sold.
Northwestern’s “super protective” film was created by researchers at Northwestern University’s College of Agricultural Sciences and Engineering.
“It’s a highly specialized material,” Blatt told the AP.
If the film does not work, Northwestern will make a similar protective film for the university’s athletic teams, which are not allowed to use the film.
Northwestern is one of many schools testing the virus, which has infected more than 10 million people and killed more than 1,500 in the United States.
