An article published by the National Institutes for Health states that "bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces, and the term 'contact killing' has been coined for this process. While the phenomenon was already known in ancient times, it is currently receiving renewed attention. This is due to the potential use of copper as an antibacterial material in health and wellness settings. The antimicrobial activity of copper and copper alloys is now well established, and copper has recently been registered at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first solid antimicrobial material."
