UV Light Sanitizer Wand | Ultra Violet Sterilizer Lamps | UV Lights Germicidal Disinfection | UV Germ Killer Lamp | UV C Sanitizer
Should you get a UV LIGHT SANITIZER WAND? I looked at WebMD for some answers regard UV sanitizers and Corona. We’ve been using UV as a germicide for some time but there are risks involved. Know what you’re getting, look at some of the research and decide. Used properly it should not hurt, but the jury is out on how much it can help.
Some things to know
The kind of light that’s used, ultraviolet C (UVC), is a ray given off by the sun. Normally this ray does not reach us, it is filtered out by the ozone before it can get to us. Which is important because even though it can kill germs, it is also known to cause cancer, destroy our DNA and destroy the corneas of our eyes. So while this technology has great potential there is also serious risk if not used properly.
Now, at the moment we don’t have enough data to know how well these rays work on Corona. We do know however that the sanitizing effects of UV lights have been seen with other coronaviruses. For example the one that causes SARS. “The National Academy of Sciences says although there is no concrete evidence for UV’s effectiveness on the virus that causes COVID-19, it has worked on other similar viruses, so it would likely fight this one too.” WebMD
How it Works, from the Company
UV sanitizing also known as UV disinfection or ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) works by breaking down certain chemical bonds and scrambling the structure of DNA, RNA and proteins. Thus causing a microorganism to be unable to multiply. Bacteria, virus, mold can be widely found in everyday objects we use.
