On Tuesday, Forbes published an article that included an interview with Columbia University’s Center for Radiology Research’s Dr. David Brenner about the potential for Far-UVC light in residential living spaces. Among many other things, Dr. Brenner told Forbes:
“One plus is that far-UVC lamps would be useful to reduce not only the transmission of COVID-19 but, ongoing, also other airborne diseases such as seasonal influenza, measles and TB – not to mention the next pandemic virus when it comes. I might just add in terms of safety, that there are already national and international regulations as to how much UV light of a particular wavelength people can safely be exposed to. The far-UVC vendors are designing their lamps to stay well within these regulatory safety limits.”
