Lighting Firm Signify Says UV Light Breaks Down Coronavirus Particles In Seconds
Some indication and evidence that UV light is indeed effective against the COVID-19 coronavirus.
"“We knew that it (UV light) was effective against viruses in general, but we didn’t know if it was the case with Covid-19 so we worked with Boston University,” Rondolat said. “We carried out the tests many, many times and the metrics are quite interesting.”
Rondolat said the company’s UV light is able to eradicate 96% of the coronavirus with three seconds of exposure. That goes up to 99% for six seconds of exposure.
“It’s a preventive measure, meaning we are disinfecting objects, environments, surfaces, and the air,” said Rondolat, adding that schools, offices, hospitals, warehouses and manufacturing plants will all need to be disinfected in the future."
