“Since the finding in 1978, artificially produced UVC has become a staple method of sterilisation – one used in hospitals, airplanes, offices, and factories every day.”
Researchers are now looking at how UVC affects Covid-19 and while there are no completed studies to date, studies have shown that it can be used against other viruses, such as Sars (see study). The radiation warps the structure of their genetic material and prevents the viral particles from making more copies of themselves.
As a result, a concentrated form of UVC is now on the front line in the fight against Covid-19. In China, whole buses are being lit up by the ghostly blue light each night, while squat, UVC-emitting robots have been cleaning floors in hospitals. Banks have even been using the light to disinfect their money."
