A global research team of experts says that the sun destroys the corona virus 8 times faster than our previous estimates. But why is that? We don’t know anything about this at the moment.
Last year, two separate studies found that ultraviolet rays in the sun kill the corona virus in 10 to 20 minutes.
A recent study, after comparing the two studies, found that the corona virus was eliminated by ultraviolet rays in artificial conditions eight times faster than previously thought.
Even in real human saliva, the speed was three times higher than our previous estimates.
It should be noted that there are two types of ultraviolet rays: “UV-A” and “UV-B”. Both are naturally occurring in the sun reaching the earth.
Both experiments examined the effects of UVB rays on the corona virus, as they are already known for their virulence and antiseptic properties.
According to recent research, experts say that the rapid elimination of corona virus from the sun has proved to be 3 to 8 times faster than our previous estimates.
At present, experts do not know why this is so, but they suspect that the role of low-energy “UVA” rays may also be important in this case, which needs to be explored.
These investigations will be important not only in controlling the spread of the corona virus, but also in effectively eradicating other viruses and germs in the future.
