UVC Assists in Protection Against the Coronavirus

As we continue to hear about the increased prevalence of Covid-19, the Coronavirus, many people are looking for solutions to combat the spread. The CDC recommends social distancing, good hand hygiene, and reduced facial touching in order to help prevent the spread of this disease. If a healthcare facility does have confirmed cases of Covid-19 or looking to prepare for the potential patients infected, UVC is a vital choice to have in your infection prevention tool kit. UVC offers whole-room-disinfection capabilities, which help reduce the spread of viruses, bacteria, and fungus by denaturing their DNA. This prevents the pathogen from replicating and infecting others. Even with excellent room-cleaning techniques, areas are missed and infection can spread. Using UVC after cleaning the room can further prevent the transmission of diseases like Covid-19. Skytron has the most comprehensive UVC portfolio on the market and has a UVC device to meet your facility’s individual needs.

For more information regarding UVC disinfection, please contact Mike Czechowskyj at mczechowskyj@skytron.com
