In an open letter to the ECDC, LightingEurope calls for UV-C to be used as a complementary technology. The latest scientific studies and developments support that UV-C is widely used to disinfect water, surfaces and the air and has been proven to inactivate, without exception, all bacteria, and viruses against which it has been tested, including those causing tuberculosis, influenza, and SARS-Cov-2.
Since publication of the last ECDC paper which mentioned UV-C, several scientific studies providing new evidence about the effectiveness of UV-C light in preventing aerosol transmission of Sars-CoV-2 have been published, meriting a new ECDC recommendation. The Global Lighting Association (GLA) also published a new UVGI effectiveness study to this extent.
