Scientists say UV-LEDs can kill noble Coronavirus efficiently, quickly and cheaply

In a latest study, scientists have said that ultraviolet (UV) light emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) can be efficient, quick and cheap in killing the novel Coronavirus, adding that the new innovation can be installed in Air conditioning and water systems.

Hadas Mamane, co-author of the study from the American Friends of Tel Aviv University in the US said, “The entire world is currently looking for effective solutions to disinfect the Coronavirus.”

Published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology, the research assessed the disinfection efficiency of UV-LED irradiation at different wavelengths on a virus from the family of Coronaviruses that includes the COVID-19-causing SARS-CoV-2.
