Standard UVC is ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 250 nanometres. This high frequency wavelength light kills bacteria and viruses.
Standard UVC is ultraviolet light with a wavelength of 250 nanometres This high requency wavelength light kills bacteria and viruses and has been used extensively for more than 40 years in disinfecting drinking water, wastewater, air, hospitals, pharmaceutical products, and surfaces against a whole suite of human pathogens.
All bacteria and viruses tested to date (many hundreds over the years, including other
coronaviruses) respond to UV disinfection. Although, some organisms are more susceptible to UVC disinfection than others, all tested so far do respond at the appropriate doses.
