UVC based sterilization for hospitals during COVID-19 pandemic for the control of pathogenicity

Valluri, Ashwini ; Dhadse, Sharda


As it is well known that hospitals became the hotspots for the spread of COVID-19, it is preferable to control the transmission of infection by UVC. As UVC became much safer to use than any other UV lights, the transmission of airborne pathogens is the fastest means of spread of infection in human during outbreak of current pandemic COVID-19 caused by COV-2.

UVC light is a historic and prudent philosophy for contravention and reduction of airborne viral infections without the human hazards with normal germicidal UVC lights. The use of outstandingly low level UVC light in open territories may address a secured and fitting strategy for limiting the transmission and spread of airborne-interceded microbial contamination. Public places like medical clinics, offices and public division may have higher risk of infection spread. UV-C lights are highly recommended and favored techniques to treat and maintain a strategic distance from contamination. The scope of this review paper is to study advantages and disadvantages of UVC and its effects on human body.
