MARKHAM, ON / ACCESSWIRE / April 2, 2020 / iFabric Corp. ("iFabric") (TSX:IFA), today provided the following update with regard to efficacy testing of PROTX2 treated fabrics against COVID-19:

"I am pleased to announce that efficacy testing of fabrics treated with the anti-viral variant of our PROTX2 formulation will commence shortly" said Hylton Karon, President and CEO of iFabric. "Our testing will be conducted at a top South Korean laboratory, as we were unable to locate any laboratories in North America that currently have availability of the necessary cultures, despite the current pandemic. We would anticipate receiving the initial test results within a period of a few weeks," continued Mr. Karon.

"Although prior testing of our PROTX2 formulation against the Norovirus and H1N1 viruses showed exceptional efficacy this does not automatically guarantee success against COVID-19, due to the unique characteristics of different viruses" stated Mr. Karon.

In light of the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Company also confirms that it has initiated a second test against the human Coronavirus which, according to our experts, has similar physical make-up to the COVID-19 virus. This test will be conducted at a testing facility in the United States and should be concluded in about three weeks.

The Company will release the test results as they become available.

"At the same time, we are currently reviewing regulatory provisions in the United States that allow for expedited approvals or exemptions in emergency situations of products such as those treated with PROTX2" concluded Hylton Karon.
