After years of acting in films, “Innerspace” actor Dennis Quaid is putting his talents to use hosting TV’s “Viewpoint”. The educational television program highlights numerous topics that impact people living around the world today. Coming to the show is a new episode discussing the technology used to help fight against COVID-19. Tech experts will spend the segment discussing how UVGI is helping combat the pandemic.
As COVID-19 proceeds to work its way through the world, scientists are researching ways to help further prevent its spread beyond the recommended social distancing and regular hand washing with UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation Treatments). UVGI tech emits low, continuous doses of a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses without harming human eyes, skin, and tissues. It can be utilized safely in occupied public places to kill pathogens before they infect bodies.
Since COVID-19 can be spread via exhaling, coughing, or speaking, UVGI could be a game-changer in preventing further spread of the highly contagious disease. On a smaller scale, the ultraviolet technology is seeing use as smaller devices to disinfect items like cellphones, which are known to collect bacteria by being a high-touch surface.
UVGI can improve sanitization practices and make public areas safer to visit. Additional details about the technology will be in the upcoming episode.
