These have been developed by a Muro de Alcoy textiles firm, Color Print Fashion, which has patented the masks whose colour changes if the wearer’s temperature goes above 37.5 degrees.
One of the first batches have been acquired by the Man comunidad del Xarpolar, a group of municipalities that are located principally in the l’Alcoia and El Comt at areas.
