Since February 2020 SARS-CoV-2 infected US and based on the statistics, the infection rates developed like a tsunami, affecting over 3% of US population, representing 20% of the world cases. The US CDC protection instructions were flimsy, incomplete and badly explained while virus transmission explanations were an affront to common sense that motivated us to develop protective devices to allow sitting in the presence of a contagious person and be safe, suppressing virus transmission. The development considers the transmission through direct contact and aerosolized watery droplet respiratory transmission that accounts for more than 80% of the cases. The further study showed that masks and social distancing were not enough to suppress transmission, and systems that are more complex are needed. Three patent applications were filed concerning individual protection using air restauration technologies, later developed into synergistic protective systems, and a set of furniture to allow dining and seating in close proximity, being protected by several confinement layers based on aerodynamics and energetic radiation able to sterilize and refurbish the air, making it better to breathe.
The patents come to mitigate the failures of society to protect itself in a smart manner, providing means to have the same social life and proximity as before 2019 and stay safe even in the presence of COVID-19 contagious specimens, preferable without shutting down or disturbing the economy and social life. A smart society should use the synergistic protective systems for at least 3 weeks may suppress any pandemic, if uses cellphone GPS-Wi-Fi tracking, border control and medicine.
