MOSCOW (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 27th May, 2020) Deep ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) developed by the Japanese Nikkiso Co company are able to effectively weaken the coronavirus, media reported on Wednesday.
According to the Kyodo news agency, UV-LEDs can reduce the COVID-19 infection capacity by over 99.9 percent and have no serious side-effects on the human body or environment.
The experiment involved shining LEDs on a liquid culture of the virus for 30 seconds. The discovery that deep UV light-emitting diodes weaken COVID-19 was found after three days of experiments.
"Along with washing hands and wearing protective clothing, we must combine various items to restore normal life. I hope this helps it," Hiroko Inagaki, an assistant professor at the university's medicine faculty, said during a press conference, as quoted by Kyodo.
Deep UV is also effective against allergens, and the Tokyo-based is using LEDs in its air purifier.
Moreover, shares of Nikkiso Co gained nearly 14 percent in value on Wednesday amid reports about the experiment.
