Meanwhile when the world is fighting against the coronavirus outbreak, LEDs that deliver virus killing, UV lights might be a practical solution for preventing infection. Runny nose, cough, fever, muscle and joint pain are the symptoms of the flu. Contrary to popular belief, influenza is a slightly stronger cold, but on the contrary it is a severe infectious disease, in extreme cases life-threatening infection.
A wonderful and most effective specificity that can both protect against flu and speed up its treatment is production of Vitamin D, which can be produced in tanning salons.
Vitamin D is formed by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. This means that the one of the most important immune support is directly related to the radiation dose received, i.e. staying in the sun. It is no longer know from now on that our latitude has a fairly long period of time during which the sun’s rays fall at such an angle that vitamin D synthesis no longer occurs. This is an excellent opportunity to supplement and ineffective diet and visit a tanning studio to provide your body with enough vitamin D.
Thus, in theory, UV light would be able to destroy the novel coronavirus (2019-nCov). The virus is sensitive to ultraviolet light and heat, so ultraviolet radiation can effectively eliminate the virus.
Ultraviolet light kills microorganisms by damaging the DNA. UV radiation disrupts the chemical bonds that hold the atoms of DNA together in the microorganism. If the damage is severe enough, the bacteria cannot repair the damage and will die. Longer exposure to UV light is necessary to ensure complete kill-off of all microorganisms.
How UV LEDs might help to diminish Coronavirus?
The scientists at the Columbia University Irving Medical Centre are reporting on their ground breaking discovery that can change the way we fight viruses. The studies have shown that UV-C light to this extent is most effective in killing airborne viruses without any harm to human tissue.
The UV-C radiation which has a wavelength of between 200 to 400 nanometers (nm) is present in sunlight, but no part of it reaches the earth- the whole is absorbed by the atmosphere.
For many years its been known that in a broad spectrum, this radiation can be used to kill all microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA with its short wavelengths.
The use of such lamps in public places such as railway stations, airports, schools or hospitals, where there are many people, and therefore where it is easiest for viruses to spread. From the most common cold to the much more dangerous microorganisms, including the most dangerous bacteria at the moment which is the 2019-nCov. The key to fighting these type of viruses is ultraviolet light.
Importantly, it has previously been possible to prove that this radiation also shows effectiveness in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and therefore can be a torment in the fight against “dangerous bacteria” – even with those strains that we have not yet discovered.
To prevent infection, washing hands often with soap and water and use anti bacterial hand gels are still critical way to avoid spreading of viruses.
