IUVA white paper on the use of UV against SARS-CoV-2

7 Jul 2020

The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) has published a white paper on the use of UV radiation to inactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus. SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19.

While at the moment not much data are available on the effect of disinfectants (including UV radiation) on SARS-CoV-2, several scientific studies collectively show promising results.

Find the details in the white paper on the IUVA website on their COVID-19 page (under “White Papers” on the right).
