The fabric is also made from natural, sustainable and biodegradable materials, and the non-leaching properties ensure that the fabric has a smooth and soft feel. In a statement, Ramesh Poddar, CMD of Siyaram’s Silk Mills Ltd said that 90% of our body is covered with clothes and viruses have the tendency to thrive on the surface of fabrics for longer hours increasing the exposure of humans to the infection.However, while the fabric may be mostly resistant to coronavirus, one may still have to take other measures to ensure they don’t contract the virus via other means. One will still have to wear masks, sanitize constantly and maintain social distancing.
