    NYT: Copper surfaces are valuable in killing disease-causing microbes left on them, but are not infallible in preventing the spread of disease, according to a 2011 review article in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. A significant percentage of many pathogens die on copper surfaces, but those are only an adjunct to normal hospital sanitation procedures of all kinds.

    The killing mechanism is not fully understood.

    I`m not pretty sure that copper has any significant microbicide activity.
    I guess I know why "The killing mechanism is not fully understood" and "A significant percentage of many pathogens die on copper surfaces"... The key is for how long you leave these germs on any surface for... Everybody and everything can just die with no "food" and water left around there... icon_eek.gificon_biggrin.gif
