Company on COVID-killing lightbulb: 'We need to do what we can while we can do it'
A company in New Mexico says they've come up with an idea that could use UVC light to help kill the COVID-19 virus.
energy wants to naturally circulate. I have been trying to make things better ever since I was a kid, and when I was a kid, I didn't get listened to. And once I got older, I said, You know what? I'm gonna change the world, because if I don't do it, that doesn't seem like it's gonna Isaac Barboza says he's created the most efficient lightbulb in the world, but now he's working on shedding his light in a specific direction. During this time of Cove it I really wanted to join the fight, figure out how I could be a best of help. You v c like a specific ultraviolet light, can disinfect surfaces and kill viruses. That technology isn't new, but Barbosa's says using his highly efficient invention and applying it in new ways is like this fan. It's important that we also disinfect the air, and so a technology like this isn't even on the market right now is really important at a time. Like now, it pulls air in and uses UV C light to kill airborne viruses. Isaac Startup is currently working with Sandia Labs to test their products, and they're looking for space to set up a manufacturing site in Albuquerque. UV C light can be dangerous to people if they're directly exposed. But, he says, if you could apply this technology to schools, grocery stores, even airplanes, when people aren't in them, it may help keep people safe. And whether or not it is to cure all, we need to do what we can while we can do it.
