New proposal: "UV indicator" for disinfection practices
Indicators contributes to infection control amid COVID-19 confusion
As the winter season is setting in the northern hemisphere, the spread of coronavirus has been causing even serious confusion in each country. The number of new cases in Japan is hitting the highest records by the third wave, and there are growing concerns about the economic slowdown and the collapse of the medical system. It is expected that the worst-ever situation will be improved sooner as the system of vaccination program is put into practice, but it is important to keep with the everyday habits of washing hands and wearing masks and infection prevention measures should continue in public places.
Nowadays there are several kinds of infection control measures as precaution, though in this article we would like to introduce the way of infection control using UV light. This preventive measure is expected to easily kill or inactivate most of the viruses in a short time, and is actually being used not only for medical institution rooms and equipment, but also for others, such as for the disinfection of the airplane cabins and the hotel rooms.
