As a massive second wave of Covid19 infections threatened to overwhelm the U.S and some European countries before the winter, France President and Germany Chancellor ordered their countries back into lockdown. With over 500,000 infections this week, the United States set a new record for new coronavirus cases over a 7-day period. The worldwide death toll from the coronavirus set a new high this week as the number of cases crossed 44 millions.
Sales of aerosol disinfectants increased 385.3% year on year. The need of sanitization related products could spark investors interest in American Premium Water Corp (HIPH), Optec International, Inc. (OPTI) and ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (ATWT).
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, American Premium Water Corp. (OTC: HIPH) recently announced the start of production run of its aerosolized sanitizing machine using proprietary nano-infused technology.
The initial production run marks the beginning of the Company’s efforts to sell its aerosolized sanitizing machines, in addition to its two new products utilizing its proprietary Hydro Nano technology: Nano Energy Water and Nitrous Oxide Shots. The products are in process of application for product distribution in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, USA and Canada.
Ryan Fishoff, CEO of American Premium Water, commented, “I am excited to announce the beginning of production for our new products with our new partner in BioHealth Water. This first run will get the products into the hands of distributors across the Pacific Rim (North America & Asia). We are only scratching the surface of the potential that we have with BioHealth Water, and I look forward to receiving feedback from our distributors as we prepare for full scale production later this year. Our plans to increase the volume of distribution alongside various other initiatives that we intend to achieve in the remaining quarter of 2020 will set a firm platform for us to move full steam into 2021. As I have been emphasizing over the years, I believe this partnership highlights the value of the Company’s Hydro Nano technology. We are exploring even more ways to unlock value from this technology, and I look forward to sharing these developments with shareholders in the coming weeks and months.”
The Company previously announced in April that it had developed a prototype of an aerosolized sanitizing machine using its proprietary Hydro Nano technology. This production run will be the first run of the devices and its accompanying sanitizing nano-solution. All products will be sold through HWH global distributors (www.hwhworld.com) and direct sales in the respective countries.
Optec International, Inc. (OTC: OPTI) recently announced that it has successfully deployed a suite of its sterilization products and “Safe-Scan” temperature scanners to a local San Diego school district. The district has already implemented these products in their classrooms and across the school campus which have been in use since the re-opening of the school. The adoption of these added safety measures could not come at a better time as the flu season approaches and the increased threat of the pandemic looms.
More than 587,000 children in the US have tested positive for the virus since the beginning of the pandemic reported the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association. The same association also found that 74,553 child cases were reported between September 3rd- 17th which represents a 15% increase in this group over two weeks. As schools continue to open up with modified or regular schedules it is critical that new safety standards are put into place.
OPTEC International CEO stated, “We are extremely happy to be able to distribute our sterilization products to schools helping to ensure the safety of students, faculty, and parents. We believe this is the beginning of a standardized approach to safety protocols when it comes to returning to schools, and hope to continue to serve this population at large. Since the addition of the Safe Scanners and Rovers to the local school district, amidst extremely positive testimonials, inquiries and discussions are in process for several other large school districts coast to coast.”
ATWEC Technologies (OTC: ATWT), a Child safety and security company, is giving transportation companies and passengers yet another layer of protection. The company has introduced the KV-X Sterilization System, a new automated, two-stage sterilization system for school buses, daycare vans, and other commercial vehicles that kills germs, viruses, and bacteria in the air and on vehicle surfaces quickly, safely, and effectively.
Built for 15-passenger vehicles or larger, the KV-X features a 30-minute, two-stage sanitization module that adheres to all FDA guidelines. When the KV-X system is initiated, a built-in induction fan draws air through an easily replaceable HEPA filter and into a self-contained ultraviolet light (UVC) to disinfect the air within the vehicle. During the next stage, ozone is generated to clean seats, door handles, and other high-touch internal surfaces. UVC and ozone have been scientifically tested and used for years to kill airborne and surface germs and viruses.
The KV-X comes with a built-in timer, enabling users to schedule the system to self-start at a pre-designated time, typically overnight, to ensure vehicles are properly sanitized for next-day use. An always-on motion sensor (the same technology that powers ATWEC’s KV-4 Child Reminder System) confirms a vehicle is empty before the KV-X sterilization cycle can begin. If the KV-X detects motion during the cycle, it will immediately shut down the system to prevent direct passenger exposure to the ozone and UVC.
COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
