UV Radiation a Better COVID Killer: Expert
Source: DC, Hyderabad, June 6
It is ultraviolet radiation and not heat radiation that is likely to kill the Coronavirus, according to Dr B.G. Sidharth, director of the BM Birla Science Centre, Hyderabad.
He said, “Many molecular biologists claimed that excess heat and tropical temperatures like that in India will melt the Coronavirus, but what we see now is the complete opposite. Even at 45° Celsius temperatures across the country, the cases are only increasing, signifying the deadly transmitting capacity of the virus. Hence, it is not heat but a compound of ultraviolet radiation that is now found to be used for the treatment of positive patients. ”
He added that this treatment is being used more in Russia, as has been confirmed to him by Dr M.V. Altaisky, a senior scientist at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna, Russia.
Explaining the science behind this, Dr Sidharth said, “This is done by inhaling some gases with long-lived atomic/molecular level relaxation so that the excited atoms stay long enough in the excited states and then irradiate the lung tissue”
