The proposed antiviral and antibacterial activity can be used for the hospitals, diagnostic centre and public places to reduce the spread of COVID 19. The nanostructured TiO2 based antiviral activity will facilitate the adsorption of the virus on the surface and consequently damage/degrade the virus by production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) under normal white light.
