USA Manufacturer Develops Light Fixtures & Access Points with FAR UVC in bid to Destroy Deadly Viruses

FAR UVC press relase

FAR UVC press relase21 May 2020 Safelight UV FAR UVC: Airborne-mediated microbial diseases like coronavirus, influenza and tuberculosis are major public health challenges.

One way of preventing airborne transmission that has long been established is by inactivating airborne pathogens with UVC ultraviolet light.

What has held this tech back from being implemented widely in public settings is the fact that many conventional UVC light sources are both carcinogenic and tend to induce cataracts.

Now there is SAFELIGHT UV patent-pending FAR UVC lighting that is made in the USA for all sort of public spaces from offices to large stadium venues. The new lighting products are called Wave222 and Wave222 Gateway

The manufacturers hope that their technology could play a big part in bringing everyday life back to normal. They state that FAR UVC Lighting is safe for humans as it does not penetrate human skin or damage the eye’s cornea.

The key advances in UV lighting technology were highlighted by FAR-UVC lamps. These devices operate at a wavelength of 222 nanometers (nm). This frequency doesn’t penetrate skin or the outer layer of the human eye and it is being brought to bear on the fightback against the coronavirus and other superbugs.

The aim of these USA-made products is to be installed at the entrances of buildings, theme parks, transportation terminals and sporting events.

A company spokesman says: “FAR SAFE UVC lighting will be a game-changer for bringing people back to work in offices or other places with large gatherings such as sporting events or even transportation terminals.

“We are here to stop the invisible enemy and help with creating calm and security with FAR UVC lighting in schools, dormitories, office buildings sports arenas, supermarkets, airport, bus, cruise ship  and train terminals.”

The FAR UVC 222 nm wavelength was discovered by Dr David Brenner at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, and SAFELIGHT UV  has taken it a step further to develop this technology to provide safe environments for people so they can continue their daily lives.

The way UV lights disinfect is by disrupting the molecular bonds that hold microbial genetic material (proteins) together.

Commonly used lights have wavelengths of 254nm, which have relatively short UV wavelengths— called the “C” category—which can penetrate skin and eyes causing cancer and cataracts.

Lack of Testing Leaves Us In The Dark with Covid-19

Covid-19

Covid-19The UK’s blind, blanket ban on movement during this coronavirus crisis is akin to trying to fly a plane, navigate a ship or drive a car wearing a blindfold and ear plugs!

Compare us to Germany, which is currently testing as many as 500,000 people each week for Covid-19. Britain, on the other hand, is badly lagging behind. In the UK just 104,800 tests have been conducted in the entire period since the end of January.

When we compare the proportion of people infected who go on to die the lowest rates of all are in Germany and Austria. Only around 0.7% of people infected go on to die in these countries.

Indeed, according to researchers at the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Centre, of the 53,340 Germans infected just 395 have died. In Austria the figures are 7,712 infections have led to just 58 fatalities.

There is no real difference between the way that Germany tests people and the way we do it in the UK. Where the difference is stark is in the volume of the testing.

Germany now tests as many as 500,000 people a week for coronavirus, while Britain has conducted a measly 104,800 tests in the whole period since January’s end.

Austria is also testing heavily. Its plan is to hit 15,000 tests a day while Britain, with nearly eight times the size of population, says it aims for just 10,000 a day by the end of this month.

In Germany, the Robert Koch Institute, that has the responsibility for officially recording deaths in that country, says it treats “someone to be a corona death” in all cases where some sort of corona infection is proven. This effectively means those deaths counted as corona deaths include ALL deaths that can be associated with Covid-19.

So the German testers include all who have died from Covid-19, including all people who have underlying health problems and are infected even where it’s not even possible to say what actually killed them.

Those who are not tested before they die but are suspected of Covid-19 are tested post-mortem and if there are signs of coronavirus infection, they are listed as Covid-19 deaths.

So the German method counts anyone infected with Covid-19 who goes on to die as a Covid-19 victim regardless of whether it’s proven the virus killed them directly.

That is pretty much how deaths are also counted in the UK. So we are comparing like with like. The reasons for Germany’s lower death toll, are largely down to this extensive testing. The fact is that high testing rates not only assist authorities monitor and understand coronavirus’s spread but also it helps the medics fight Covid-19’s lethality.

With clear knowledge of what is going on and where enables the selective quarantining of those people who have or may have the virus so that the most vulnerable can be better shielded. It means medical attention can be targeted at the vulnerable at an early stage so their chances of survival are increased.

Meanwhile we in the UK are still in the dark!
