How to use a UV lamp to disinfect home or offices?

Since the novel coronavirus is sensitive to ultraviolet radiation, an ultraviolet disinfection lamp can be used for household and workplace disinfection.

Make sure your lamp can generate ultraviolet light with a central wavelength at 253.7 nanometers - the most effective for killing germs.

Remember that the disinfection of indoor air should be carried out in closed environments to ensure effectiveness, and you should always avoid direct exposure of your eyes and skin to the ultraviolet radiation.

In addition, respiratory hygiene, fully-cooked food, and good ventilation of rooms are all recommended for containing the virus.
