Japan has already started production of copper face masks.
The Gunma University-based venture Gunma University Development & Innovation (GUDi), in the Gunma prefectural city of Kiryu, and Meisei Industry Co., a manufacturer of tinsel wire in the prefecture's capital Maebashi, joined together to create the versatile item. It is hoped it will go to market soon and be adapted to a variety of existing products. 
The sheet has a semi permanent sterilization effect which causes virus particles to become inactive, meaning they lose their ability to cause infections, and is at the same time harmless to the human body. Among its preventative uses against the coronavirus, it can be worn over face masks or used to cover electrical light switches.

The sheet developed by the innovators in Gunma Prefecture, eastern Japan, has a visible light-responsive photocatalyst applied to its copper surface. Whenever the sheet is exposed to light, it activates substances with high oxidizing power that break down virus particles and bacteria. An experiment using E. coli found that a copper fiber sheet is 1,000 times more effective in fighting bacteria than copper alone is. (source)
