Coronavirus dies in SUNLIGHT in just minutes, reveals 'striking' study by US Department of Homeland Security - and officials say transmission of the killer virus WILL decrease in summer
William Bryan, science and technology advisor to the Department of Homeland Security secretary, told reporters at the White House that government scientists had found ultraviolet rays had a potent impact on the pathogen, offering hope that its spread may ease over the summer. 'Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus, both surfaces and in the air,' he said. 'We've seen a similar effect with both temperature and humidity as well, where increasing the temperature and humidity or both is generally less favorable to the virus.' The radiation given off by ultraviolet light damages the virus's genetic material and their ability to replicate.
But the paper itself has not yet been released for review, making it difficult for independent experts to comment on how robust its methodology was.
It has long been known that ultraviolet light has a sterilizing effect, because the radiation damages the virus's genes. .
