Webinar: Pathogen Reduction for the Modern Age: UV and Near-UV

Recorded December 17, 2020
This webinar features a very promising Covid eradication technology—upper room UV-C lighting. This involves installing fixtures in hotel lobbies, shops, restaurants and bars that are active while people mingle below. The fixtures are placed high on walls such that they’re out of harms’ way. The air circulation ensures that the potentially Covid-laden air is lifted into the cross hairs of the UV-C fixtures, destroying the Covid.

Other anti-Covid technologies involves cleaning surfaces after people have left. Upper room UV-C lighting may do a better job because they extinguish the fire while it’s raging rather than dealing with the embers.
