While the Covid-19 epidemic has hit the French economy hard, some companies have managed to pull out of the game by developing innovations to fight the virus or to learn to live with it. In Saint-Chamas (Bouches-du-Rhône), for example, a French start-up has developed in its laboratory a nasal spray against Covid-19, which has yet to receive authorization to be marketed in pharmacies. “This spray removes all bacteria, viruses and pollution in the nasal cavities, and thus dislodges the coronavirus“, explains Laurent Dodet, president and co-founder of P&B Group.
For its part, in Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône), a university laboratory specializing in the study of virucidal products has been receiving more and more samples since the start of the health crisis, such as the nasal spray developed in Saint- Chamas. Samples whose effectiveness he is responsible for validating. Another innovation developed by a start-up in Marseille: an intelligent mask, impregnated with virucidal milk. With their products, French start-ups are in a good position to provide complementary solutions to vaccines in the fight against Covid-19.
