UV light is used in hospitals to sanitize rooms and as a sterilizer for baby bottles because it destroys the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses and bacteria. Insider reported.
While UV can cause the development of skin cancer on human skin, the lower strains of light used in such disinfectants are safe and effective for home use.
“UV cleaners or sterilizers are quite common and have enough evidence to reduce the bacteria / germ count,” one woman noted.

How does UV light destroy germs?
It is very effective in decontamination because it destroys the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses and bacteria, including ‘superbugs’, which have developed stronger antibiotic resistance.
Killing bacteria and viruses with UV light is particularly effective because it kills germs, regardless of drug resistance and no toxic chemicals. It is also effective against all germs, even newly emerging pathogenic strains.
“It generally takes about 10-15 seconds for the sanitizing cycle to work … $ 80 is cheap, and you’d be surprised at the amount of bacteria on someone’s phone.”
“I know a few companies that use this and are actually quite good,” said another.
But not everyone was convinced that the UV device was better than using an alcohol disinfectant wipe on a phone.
‘Just take some isopropyl alcohol, which you usually get from the pharmacy and use a cloth with some wipes to wipe the screen. Otherwise, the cotton swabs that are packed individually, “said one woman.
Coronavirus symptoms and how it spreads:
Symptoms can range from mild illness to pneumonia. Some people will recover easily and others can get very sick very quickly. People with coronavirus may experience:
- flu-like symptoms such as coughing, sore throat and fatigue
- shortness of breath
How it spreads
There is some evidence that the virus is spreading from person to person. The virus is likely to spread through:
- close contact with an infectious person
- contact with drops from an infected person’s cough or sneeze
- touching objects or surfaces (such as doorknobs or tables) that have an infected person’s cough or sneeze droplets, and then touch your mouth or face
How you can prevent this
Everyone must practice good hygiene to protect themselves against infections. Good hygiene means:
- wash hands often with soap and water
- use a tissue and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
- avoid close contact with others, such as touching
“Dettol wipes have the same effect and don’t cost an arm and leg,” said another.
Medical professionals are convinced that washing your hands with soap that contains more than 60 percent alcohol and social distance are the two best methods to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
But for those who just want to keep their phone clean, it’s a good two-in-one option.
