Can an ultraviolet disinfection lamp be effective in killing Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

There are so many posts shared in social media that an ultraviolet disinfection lamp can kill Coronavirus disease and making people confused. We would like to request you not to go for any rumors instead look for a reality and act cautiously to protect yourself and your family as well as friends.

Covid-19 myth Vs reality.

Now regarding the above matter, WHO has clearly mentioned that ultraviolet disinfection lamps are not at all effective for killing the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on our body. To use UVC light safely, you need specialist equipment and training. So, you should be extra careful while disinfecting the objects with UV light and should not use it to sterilize your hands or any part of your body or your pets. We also want you to read the article released by BBC by clicking >HERE< to find out how much it is dangerous to use UV technology. So, UV light shall not be used to sterilize hands or any other parts of the body as it can cause skin irritation due to its UV radiations. Till the date, there is no any device, medicine or vaccine discovered to kill the Coronavirus.

So regardless of believing in any buzzes, people shall adopt precautionary and protective measures in their daily lifestyle wherever they are.

Please do the following basis precautionary measures to keep yourself and your family and circle safe from Corona Virus:

# Frequently wash hands with hand wash or soap for at least 20 seconds.
# Use sanitizer (alcohol-based) in the unavailability of water and hand wash.
# Do not touch your facial area i.e eyes, nose and mouth to avoid infection.

The best precaution to alert yourself: Always think your hands have a shit.

It sounds funny but it is the best way to increase your consciousness to prevent yourself from coronavirus. If you think your hand has a shit then definitely you won’t touch your face or any part of the body as well as anything unnecessarily with that hand. So, keep in mind that your hand is always dirty. If you go outside, and if you touch something then just think you have touched the shit, then definitely you won’t use that hand to touch anywhere on your body as far as possible and you will rush to wash your hand as soon as possible.

Be Aware:
