Since its global outbreak in 2020, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been a severe threat to life and health and aroused worldwide concern about biosafety. Capitalizing on this, various disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, material science, and computer science, have been urged to develop novel protocols for the prevention and theranostics of biosafety issues. In particular, chemistry and material science have been addressed to provide unique strategies for solving biosafety issues, such as infections by pathogenic microorganisms like viruses or bacteria. Based on this, a new field termed “biosafety materials” has emerged.
Keywords: Biosafety; Biosafety materials; COVID-19
