Named a way to destroy the coronavirus in 25 seconds

Scientists at the national laboratory of infectious diseases (NIEDL) at Boston University, during joint research with the company Signify, have identified an effective method for inactivating the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

As part of the study, scientists led by Dr. Anthony Griffiths conducted an experiment: they treated the virus-contaminated material with different doses of ultraviolet radiation. Then they estimated the rate of inactivation of the virus.

It turned out that with a dosage of lamps of five millijoules per square centimeter, the spread of SARS-CoV-2 decreased by 99% in six seconds, and when exposed to lamps of 22 MJ/cm2, the coronavirus is almost completely destroyed in 25 seconds.
