The possibility of using ultraviolet light to kill the COVID-19 virus has been in the information.
As are the one of a kind types of UV light: UVA, UVB and UVC.
And that reminded folks the prototype self-cleansing plane rest room the Boeing Company introduced back in 2016 that seems very promising.
As described, the self-cleansing lavatory makes use of a concentrated ultraviolet mild (far ultraviolet C) to disinfect all surfaces of an aircraft lavatory after every use.
The cleansing of the bathroom seat, the sink and the countertops might be finished in just 3 seconds, correctly, even as the lavatory was unoccupied.
The system would even carry and close the toilet seat automatically, to make certain that each one surfaces are uncovered to the mild all through the cleansing cycle.
Other capabilities of the proposed self-cleaning lavatory consist of fingers-free taps, soap dispensers, trash flaps, bathroom lids and seat and hand dryers, a number of which already exist on many airplanes.
At the time, we loved the idea due to the fact aircraft lavatories are frequently so icky and unappealing and so typically germy.
But now that COVID-19 is right here and presenting this sort of frightening health danger, we like to peer the self-cleansing toilet installed on all airplanes. Wouldn’t you?
