UVC irradiation has shown high efficacy against SARS-CoV-2
19 November, 2020.
Studies have shown that the SARS-CoV-2 leading to Covid-19 can remain on surfaces for days and thereby leading to transmission of the disease among patients, their relatives and health-care personal.
A newly published study shows that UVC irradiation is highly efficient in reduction of viable virus of SARS-CoV-2 and that the UV-disinfection technique could be used for infection prevention and control against Covid-19.
Our UVC Room Disinfector has not been tested against SARS-CoV-2, but as the results from the test of the unit, performed by Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, show high efficiency on virus, bacteria and fungi, the UV-C dosage from our disinfector will have the same high efficacy against SARS- CoV-2 as described by Christiane Silke Heilingloh et. al in American Journal of Infection Control 48 (2020) 1273-1275.
