Some Gyms are considering ultraviolet light sanitizing wands for disinfecting Bars, Beams, etc.
At this point, I’d not recommend the technology.
UV-C works well for purifying liquids. And it’s been used for making food safer for over 50 years.
UV-C light probably kills the new COVID-19 virus IF the light is strong enough, direct enough, and long enough. As I post, however, that’s not yet been scientifically proven.
It did work on MERS and SARS.
But light wands work best on flat, hard surfaces.
UV-C light is dangerous for humans, as well. UV light can cause cancer. Damage eyes. It’s difficult to protect yourself while waving a wand.
Companies are working on new ways to disinfect hard surfaces with UV-C light waves. Robots, for example.
Hospitals and airlines are using the technology. Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.
