Summer midday sunshine can kill 90% of the new coronavirus in 34 minutes, study says

A new study from the United States suggests that it is possible to kill 90% of the new coronavirus in the summer sun. The study, led by U.S. Food and Drug Administration scientists Jose Luis Sagripanti and David Lytle, claimed that strong sunlight can kill the coronavirus in 34 minutes.

In the study, the annual UV exposure and corresponding viral activity in cities around the world were compared, and the role of sunlight in the occurrence, spread and duration of the New Crown virus pandemic was determined by models. This method has been proven in the application of Ebola and the Lassa fever virus.

It was found that more than 90% of the new coronaviruses were inactivated in most of the world’s densely populated cities during the summer months after 11 to 34 minutes of sustained midday sunlight.

By contrast, in winter, most cities have insufficient sunlight, and between December and March this year, the virus survives for a day or more on the surface of an outdoor object.

Who has previously said that people may be infected with the new coronavirus, no matter how sunny or hot the weather is. It is not recommended to use UV lamps to try to fight the virus, as UV lamps should not be used to disinfect the hands or other parts of the skin, and radiation may damage the skin.
