A new study says that a newly discovered ultraviolet light is said to kill almost all microbes in a room and could potentially avoid another pandemic.
The study researchers said that the new light called far-UVC could be emitted from ceiling lamps. It can kill fungi, bacteria, and viruses, including coronavirus, without causing any damage to the skin.
In the experiments, the far-UVC took less than 5 minutes to reduce the level of indoor bacteria by 98%. Even as microbes continued to be sprayed into the room, their level remained low as long as the far-UVC lights were on and working, according to The Independent.Co.
The new study Far-UVC (222 nm) efficiently inactivates an airborne pathogen in a room-sized chamber was conducted by scientists at the University of Dundee, University of St. Andrews, Columbia University, and the University of Leeds, and it was published in Scientific Reports.
According to the study author Professor David J. Brenner, the far-UVC can reduce the number of active microbes in the indoor air to almost zero, making the air indoor is safe as the outdoor air.
Prof. Brenner added that using the technology in locations where people gather together indoors could prevent the next pandemic.
The far-UVC light is simple to install. It is not expensive. It does not need people to make any changes to their behavior. It is also a safe way to prevent the transmission of any virus, including the COVID virus its other variants. It can also prevent the transmission of influenzas and other potential pandemic viruses.

Currently, the most effective and safest way to fight against COVID-19 is far uvc 222nm technology, but experts warned that some of the products are not certified.
This is a UV-based disinfection method which is based on biophysical principles, since far-UV light can pass through and therefore inactivate bacteria and viruses which are usually micrometres or smaller, whereas far-UV light cannot even penetrate the outer layer of dead cells of human skin or the outer tear layer of the eye surface due to its strong absorption in biological materials.
A key advantage of the UV-based approach is that UV light is likely to be effective against all airborne microorganisms, in marked contrast to vaccination methods. For example, while the inactivation efficiency of UV light will almost certainly vary as different strains of influenza virus emerge, they are unlikely to be significant. Similarly, as multidrug-resistant variants of bacteria emerge, their UV inactivation capacity is unlikely to vary greatly.
The use of Care222 in public places is a safe and effective way to limit the spread and transmission of air-mediated microbial diseases, such as schools, hospitals, stadiums, sports grounds and offices, and this approach may help to limit seasonal infections, the spread of tuberculosis and major epidemics. It’s inevitable far uvc will become part of the new World people are more aware and want to be protected from viruses.
Care222 is a new disinfecting light source that, even though not harmful to the skin or eyes of humans or animals, deactivates bacteria and viruses in the same manner as conventional ultraviolet sanitizers.
It can be installed in a high location, such as on the ceiling, to irradiate its entire surroundings. This makes it possible to deactivate or eliminate a wide variety of viruses and bacteria both in the air and on environmental surfaces.
Care222 uses an excimer lamp (a mercury-free UV excimer light source produced by Ushio especially for outputting monochromatic ultraviolet with a primary wavelength of 222 nm) in combination with a special optical bandpass filter (200 to 230 nm) which passes only ultraviolet wavelengths that have no harmful effect on people.
Ushio holds exclusive rights to utilization of the key technology, which was patented by Columbia University (New York, NY) in 2012.
Only 222 nm, which is filtered by a special optical bandpass filter for the rest of the harmful wavelengths, is safe for humans.
