TECH UPDATE : VUV-C Technology - It will be used in Parliament to prevent infection, does it really end corona?


UVC technology has been used to kill bacteria for years, although if it directly affects the human body, it also has side effects. Discussions about UVC have been going on since the beginning of the corona epidemic. Many UVC sanitizers have also come on the market. Now the government has announced the use of UVC in the Parliament. UVC will be used in the Central Hall, Lok Sabha Room, and Committee Rooms 62 and 63 to prevent airborne transmission of corona in the monsoon session of Parliament starting from July 19. Let us know in detail about the use, effect, and side effects of this UVC technology.

What is UVC Technology?

The full name of UCV is Ultraviolet Sea Radiation. These are commonly called ultraviolet rays. Ultraviolet light has been used for centuries to kill all kinds of viruses and bacteria. Ultraviolet light is most commonly used to kill bacteria present on a surface or environment. It is being used the most during the Corona period. UVC radiation is used to disinfect the air, water, and non-porous surfaces. Apart from this, UVC lamps are usually used. UVC lamps are also called germicidal lamps.

How effective is UVC on coronavirus?

It has been proved in many types of research that the coronavirus can be eliminated through UVC. UVC radiation is also effective in destroying the outer protein coating of the coronavirus, although there are some conditions for this. If UVC radiation falls directly on such a surface, then bacteria or viruses can be completely destroyed. This light can kill all the germs that usually escape with the use of chemicals.

Side Effects of UVC Radiation?

UVC radiation has a bad effect on the human body. If UVC falls directly and closely on any part of the body, then problems like skin burns can occur. This has been proven in many research, although its side effect depends on the wavelength of the UVC light being used at a place. For your information, let us tell you that 80 percent of UVC is responsible for the aging of our skin, wrinkles, and aging spots. There are three types of ultraviolet rays in sunlight, although they are of many types.
