Far-UVC Light Safely Kills Airborne Coronaviruses, Study Finds

More than 99.9% of seasonal coronaviruses present in airborne droplets were killed when exposed to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light that is safe to use around humans, a new study at Columbia University Irving Medical Center has found. In the study, the researchers used a misting device to aerosolize two common coronaviruses. The aerosols containing coronavirus were then flowed through the air in front of a far-UVC lamp. After exposure to far-UVC light, the researchers tested to see how many of the viruses were still alive. The researchers found that more than 99.9% of the exposed virus had been killed by a very low exposure to far-UVC light. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/06/200624172050.htm
