Omschrijving

In the weekly ‘follow-up’ section we present a sequel to last week’s best-read article here on Innovation Origins. This week it was the story about UV-C light that might be able to inactivate the coronavirus. Here’s an overview of the applications for this insight, which is actually not even that new.

“UV-C radiation is really a very powerful tool for reducing the COVID-19 infection risk,” says Luc Schlangen, senior researcher Light & Health at the Dutch TU/e’s Intelligent Lighting Institute. “If the intensity and duration of exposure are high enough, UV-C radiation inactivates the virus particles that are present,” he explains. “It’s a valuable tool that fits perfectly into a broader disinfection program.”
