What is it about?

The recent sanitary emergency originated in 2020, by the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection, has increased the attention on disinfection methods in order to prevent infections and reduce the diffusion of the virus. In this work is determined the UV inactivation constant for SARS-Cov-2, using a LED source at 280nm.

Why is it important?

UV light irradiation is a well established, simple, effective, non-contact method to inactivate pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and spores. UV irradiation is a technique that can efficiently mitigate the spread of the infection provoked by SARS-CoV-2.
