How does UVC destroy COVID19 virus?

COVID19 How does UVC destroy virus? The high energy coming from short wavelength UVC light is absorbed in RNA and DNA inside the cell, and it damages nucleic acids and prevents the reproduction of microorganisms and eliminates the risk of infection. This absorption of UVC energy creates new bonds between nucleotides, forming double bonds or “dimers”. COVID19 – Dimerization of molecules, especially thymine, is the most common type of damage caused by UVC light in microorganisms. The formation of thymine dimers in the DNA of bacteria and viruses eliminates the ability of such microorganisms to reproduce and infect.

Can SARS-CoV-2 can be eliminated by UVC light?

COVID19 – In a laboratory study conducted at Boston University, it has been shown that UVC light can eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 virus,
