H1N1 Flu Virus, also called Swine Flu, a better version of SARS disease have taken away lives of many innocent people around the globe. You may want to know how to kill h1n1 flu virus (swine flu) and protect your family from infection, please check this article.
H1N1 Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing, sneezing or talking by people with influenza. People may become infected by touching something – such as a surface or object – with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. Studies have shown that influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person for up to 2 to 8 hours after being deposited on the surface.
Then how to kill h1n1 flu virus?
HEATING: Influenza virus is destroyed by heat (167-212°F [75-100°C]
CHEMICALS: several chemical germicides, including chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, detergents (soap), iodophors (iodine-based antiseptics), and alcohols are effective against H1N1 and other influenza viruses if used in proper concentration for a sufficient length of time. For example, wipes or gels containing alcohol can be used to clean hands. The gels should be rubbed into hands for about 20 seconds or until your hands feel dry, whichever is longest.
UVC GERMICIDAL LAMP: The use of Ultraviolet (UVC) light as a surface disinfectant has been a successful and widely accepted practice dating back to the early-20th century. It is a proven way used in hospitals, schools to kill germs for disinfection. Since UVC LAMP can kill germs efficiently without chemical residuals. We will mainly talk about UVC Germicidal Lamp against H1N1 Flu Virus (Swine Flu) in this article. (Click and check our UVC Germicidal Lamp for Room Disinfection)
How Does It Work?
UVC is used to zap bacteria, viruses, mite and mold. UVC can damage DNA structure of the microorganism. Take virus as an example, UV light energy modifies the DNA structure of viral pathogens, like H1N1 Flu Virus, so that they cannot reproduce, and therefore cannot colonize and harm patients. With just proper use, it has 99.99 percent disinfection rate.
Some Facts on UVC GERMICIDAL TECHNOLOGY:
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of UV lightin a multitude of applications.
- The S. Government now specifies that UV light should be used in wet air handling unitsto improve indoor air quality by reducing allergens and molds in government buildings.
- The Air Institute of Respiratory Education suggests UV lights be used in buildings for indoor air quality purposes, stating it may be the final line of defense against those diseases which have developed resistance to drugs (such as tuberculosis).
- According to Dr. Wally Kowalski of the Aerobiological Engineering Dept. at Penn State University, theultraviolet component of sunlight is the main reason microbes die more quickly in outdoor air.
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of UV lights in all indoor environments,specifically public access buildings such as homeless shelters and hospitals, to prevent the spread of disease.
