Scientists have found an effective way to destroy coronavirus in 25 seconds

Ученые нашли эффективный способ уничтожить коронавирус за 25 секунд

A group of researchers conducted an experiment: they were treated with contaminated virus material of different doses of ultraviolet radiation lamps Signify evaluate how fast was the process of inactivation of the virus.

Ultraviolet radiation from a special lamp effectively destroys the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 for 25 seconds.

This was confirmed by studies conducted by the National laboratory for infectious diseases (NIEDL) Boston University together with Signify – one of the leaders in the field of lighting, says the channel 24.

A group of researchers conducted an experiment: they were treated with contaminated virus material of different doses of ultraviolet radiation lamps Signify evaluate how fast was the process of inactivation of the virus.

At a dose of 5 MJ / cm2 spread of the virus SARS-CoV-2 decreased by 99 percent for six seconds. When exposed at 22 MJ / cm2, the virus is destroyed almost completely in 25 seconds.

“We are very pleased with these findings and hope that it will accelerate the development of products that can help to limit the spread COVID-19”, – said the scientists.

Signify is the leader in UV light sources and more than 35 years at the forefront of UV technology.

Does this mean that the sun will destroy the virus?

On the other hand, UVC ultraviolet range greatly affects the different genetic material and viral cells, so that the UV lamp is often used for sterilization. But it is this part of the spectrum of the sun and no.
