Air Cleansing with Far-UVC 222 to Aid in Minimizing Exposure to Viruses

There’s a third way to minimize COVID exposure besides masks and distancing. Let’s start using it

The way most coronaviruses spread, including SARS-CoV-2, is through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes and aerosolized droplets are inhaled by an otherwise healthy person.

There are two primary methods for minimizing exposure to the virus recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): wearing a mask over your nose and mouth, and social distancing. Additionally, there is a third, fairly new, yet rarely mentioned method: cleansing the air. Far-UVC light at a 222-nanometer wavelength can inactivate viruses (including SARS-CoV-2) and bacteria in the air and on surfaces and isn’t harmful to humans.

Healthe Inc., is leveraging this very technology in the form of a suite of sanitization products that utilize both UVC and far-UVC 222 light to inactivate viruses (including SARS-CoV-2) and bacteria in the air and on surfaces.

“Our products adhere to standard regulatory and industry guidelines for recommended exposure limits. They include a far-UVC 222 walk-through sanitization portal and ceiling downlights, which can be found in use today in such iconic places as the Seattle Space Needle, the Miami Dolphins football facilities, and some Magnolia Bakery locations.”

If we install these lamps everywhere, can we ditch masks? Absolutely not. Did we stop wearing seatbelts when airbags became ubiquitous? Far-UVC 222 is another weapon in the fight against this pandemic and all other viruses and bad bacteria.
