A significant finding from the study shows the ability to reduce the transmission and infection from pathogens by nearly 30%.

Though ultraviolet light cannot be used in or on the human body to cure Covid-19, it is an effective tool that has been in use for decades in hospitals and operating rooms to sterilize surfaces. Technological breakthroughs in UV light could become a key tool used to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

UV isn't exactly light, because you can't see it. Our room-disinfection systems use UVC-high energy UV radiation which is actually closer to X-rays than visible light. UVC is harmful to people, and it's harmful to coronaviruses.



Our UV light system can be used to sterilize the air and surfaces in an unoccupied room. This system is fast enough to be run between patients. In this video, Eric gets suited up to take you inside an exam room while the system is running.

Time-lapse footage of bacteria-covered petri plates growing after being exposed to UV light. UV light kills bacteria, with longer exposure times resulting in higher cell mortality.
