Modest proposals are "tongue in cheek" suggestions for improving the world. This one is actually serious - -I am not sure where the tongue should be allocated in this case.
Covid virus can be killed with 2 minutes of microwaving according to here:
Paper face masks are currently in short supply. They cannot be microwaved because there is a wire in the top, used to secure it to the nose.
Why not remove the wire from a paper mask, microwave the face mask for 2 minutes, and then put the wire back in ? The illustration above shows how I modified my mask -- I cut a small slit on the side, easily slipped out the wire which had plastic attached, microwaved the remainder for 2 minutes. It is easy to insert the wire again.
Is this mask sterile now ? I don't really know, but my guess is yes.
I tried this in a weak microwave (750) and a strong one (1500). Two minutes in the strong one melted the mask plastic.
