Existing UV light technology has potential to reduce COVID-19 transmission indoors

A recent study has shown that a UV light technology already used to prevent the spread of other airborne diseases in buildings has the potential to be effective against COVID-19. The research, published in the journal PeerJ, found that upper room UV germicidal irradiation (UVGI) can kill SARS-CoV-2 virus particles, which can be transmitted by aerosolisedContinue reading “Existing UV light technology has potential to reduce COVID-19 transmission indoors”

Handheld UV light devices that can kill Covid-19 ‘may soon be as common as mobile phones’ – as scientists say the rays can ‘inactivate most viruses very efficiently’

Handheld UV light devices that can kill Covid-19 may soon be as commonplace as mobile phones, researchers claim. For years experts have known UV rays can destroy genetic material inside viruses, hampering their ability to survive on surfaces. Scientists fighting to end the pandemic have yet to uncover any proof that UV light can kill SARS-CoV-2, theContinue reading “Handheld UV light devices that can kill Covid-19 ‘may soon be as common as mobile phones’ – as scientists say the rays can ‘inactivate most viruses very efficiently’”
