Coronavirus Update – Direct Sunlight Quickly Kills The Virus

The latest research concerning coronavirus might finally bring some cheers for a pretty broken world. US scientists are saying that coronavirus dies the fastest when it is exposed to direct sunlight.

This means that with the advent of the summer season, we have a chance of seeing the pandemic recede quickly. This is certainly some long-awaited good headline. The study cited for the comments has not yet been made public for external evaluation.

William Bryan, who is a science and technology advisor to the Department of Homeland Security told reporters at the White House on Thursday that Government scientists found the ultraviolet rays to have a damaging impact on the pathogen. This was done under controlled lab conditions. The effect of natural circumstances is yet to be seen completely.

“The virus dies quickest in the presence of direct sunlight.” 

“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 added.

“We’ve seen a similar effect with both temperature and humidity as well, where increasing the temperature and humidity or both is generally less favourable to the virus.”
