The quality of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the cleanness of surfaces – everything affects our health and well-being significantly. We are all at risk of contracting or spreading viruses and bacteria, but the most vulnerable are patients who are being cared for in hospital and healthcare settings as any form of viral infection can complicate their recovery. Although UV-C lamps don't treat people directly, they can help in neutralizing viruses and bacteria that might present a danger.
UV-C radiation is a known disinfectant for air, water and surfaces that can significantly reduce the risk of acquiring an infection and has been used extensively for over four decades. All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including various coronaviruses) respond to UV-C disinfection. There are no known pathogens resistant to UV-C - a clear indication that UV-C light will play a vital in our protection strategy henceforth.
