In light of the spread of COVID-19, people are looking to better understand all of the options that exist to help keep themselves, their loved ones, and their communities safe. The pandemic has revealed a huge opportunity for all of us to take a more aggressive stance against the threat of germs — viruses and bacteria. Antimicrobial ultraviolet lighting can help, delivering regular disinfecting action that goes beyond the typical, occasional cleaning. As a leading commercial lighting distributor, ELS can find you solutions for all of your needs, including antiviral and antibacterial lighting
Since the widespread use of antibiotics began in the 1940s, we've tried to develop new drugs faster than bacteria can evolve -- but this strategy isn't working. Drug-resistant bacteria known as superbugs killed nearly 700,000 people last year, and by 2050 that number could be 10 million -- more than cancer kills each year. Can physics help? In a talk from the frontiers of science, radiation scientist David Brenner shares his work studying a potentially life-saving weapon: a wavelength of ultraviolet light known as far-UVC, which can kill superbugs safely, without penetrating our skin. Followed by a Q&A with TED Curator Chris Anderson.
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.
This is an animated presentation showing how our far-UVC light works to prevent the the airborne spread of coronavirus and influenza virus
