Far-UVC Light Safely Kills Coronaviruses

How does UVC light kill the new coronavirus?

The effective wavelength range of ultraviolet disinfection can be divided into the following 4 bands:

Ultraviolet rays have high energy and can destroy the DNA and RNA structure of microorganisms, and cause the genetic material in microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria to break, crosslink or form photochemical products.

At the same time, ultraviolet rays can also act on oxygen atoms in cells to form lethal active oxygen free radicals, which can cause microbial cells to fail to proliferate or directly die.

In addition, ultraviolet rays with a wavelength of about 185nm can also act on oxygen in the air to produce ozone with strong oxidizing effect, and can also achieve the purpose of killing viruses and bacteria.

In general, ultraviolet rays can use their own high energy to destroy the structure of a variety of microorganisms, and can also generate ozone in the air, and use ozone to kill them.

The culprit of this epidemic-the genetic material of the new coronavirus COVID-19 is RNA. Ultraviolet rays can act on the genetic material of the virus, causing the RNA of the virus to break, making it unable to synthesize the required protein normally, thereby killing the virus.

Far-UVC Light Safely Kills Airborne Coronaviruses

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.

"Based on our results,continuous

airborne disinfection with far-UVC

light at the current regulatory limit

could greatly reduce the level of

airborne virus in indoor

environments occupied by people."

“Based on our results, continuous airborne disinfection with far-UVC light at the current regulatory limit could greatly reduce the level of airborne virus in indoor environments occupied by people,” says the study’s lead author David Brenner, PhD, Higgins Professor of Radiation Biophysics at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and director of the Center for Radiological Research at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

The research was published today in Scientific Reports.
