Researchers Find Light Frequency That Kills COVID-19 Virus Without Harming Humans

Gizmodo reports scientists have discovered a specific wavelength of UV light thatโ€™s both safe for people and can kill coronaviruses, both on surfaces and in the air.

Researchers from Columbia University and Japan's Hiroshima University, have found that a UVC light wave of 222 nanometers does the trick.

It's unable to penetrate the eyeโ€™s tear layer or the dead-cell layer of skin, preventing it from reaching and damaging living cells in the human body.
