Default FLU Stopping UV Light

A specially developed UV light could be used in offices and public places to kill the airborne flu virus.

Scientists at the Columbia University Medical Center found that short pulses of far ultraviolet C light could be utilised as a means of preventing flu from spreading around offices or even public areas like train stations.

With UVC lights costing less than $1000 they are relatively inexpensive for workplaces and if enough were produced the cost would of course fall.

“And unlike flu vaccines, far-UVC is likely to be effective against all airborne microbes, even newly emerging strains.” explains study leader David J. Brenner, PhD, the Higgins Professor of Radiation Biophysics Professor of Environmental Health Sciences.

In early studies the team found that their far-UVC light was capable of killing the MRSA bacteria without harming human skin. Following on from that the team then wanted to see if they could kill the flu virus in its most common form -spreading through the air in tiny droplets.

The results of the test found that when compared to a room that wasn’t exposed by the light, the flu virus was completely inactivated.

Interesting. There is an electronics manufacturer in Hanahan that makes a UV device that supposedly will sanitize a room. Seems this techonology could be used in hospitals to sanitize.

UV is used a good bit in water purification’s systems. This is huge if they can adapt it to air.

I remember when public toilet seats were spring loaded to always be in the up position until pulled down by hand. When up it fit into a UV emitting case. If it was cheap enough for toilet seats then it should be easy to make cheaply now.

It's already in use in hospitals.

I found that if you burn down the building it was 100% effective in eradicating the flu virus in said building

That really is the best way to do it. Unless, of course, the virus mutates into an airborne flaming virus that literally burns you from the inside out. In that case, it would probably be bad.
