LED lights found to kill coronavirus: Global first in fight against COVID-19

Researchers from the Tel Aviv University (TAU) have shown that the coronavirus can be killed efficiently, quickly, and cheaply using ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs). They believe that the UV-LED technology will soon be available for private and commercial use.

 

This is the first study conducted on the disinfection efficiency of UV-LED irradiation at different wavelengths or frequencies on a virus from the family of coronaviruses. The article was published in November 2020 issue of the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology.
