The sun is cracking down on coronavirus in 15 minutes

(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have modeled the climate characteristic of the 40th degree of northern latitude. Recall that it is along this parallel that the territory of the countries and regions that are most affected by CoViD-19 passes.

Steel plates with SARS-Cov-2 samples were placed in the conditions corresponding to this climatic zone. Moreover, on some plates pathogenic particles were in artificially created saliva, and on others – in a “cultivated”, that is, the environment most suitable for them.

The researchers decided to check what will happen to the virus under the light of lamps of different capacities. It turned out that with light intensity at midday sun, the coronavirus in the saliva died in less than 7 minutes. And in the most favorable environment, the lamps neutralized the infectious agent in just over 14 minutes. It is noted that even weaker light fights SARS-Cov-2, albeit more slowly.

It is worth mentioning that these data have added to the list of useful properties of sunlight – as you know, it is a source of vitamin D, which improves immunity.
