Current research by the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) in the United States of America has come out to say that the Coronavirus dies in sunlight just in minutes, as quoted by the organization, “Sunlight can cure Coronavirus in just minutes”. See updates below.
According to the study, radiation given off by ultraviolet light damages the virus’ genetic material and hampers its ability to replicate.
Research by the Department of Homeland Security in the United States reveals that coronavirus can be killed by sunlight in a matter of minutes.
The research was carried out by the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center in the United States of America.
The outcome of the research implies that, radiation given off by ultraviolet light damages the virus’ genetic material and hampers its ability to replicate.
Results of the research were presented to reporters at the White House last night by William Bryan, a science and technology advisor attached to the Department of Homeland Security.

Bryson revealed that increased temperature and humidity were also detrimental to the virus.
“Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus, both surfaces and in the air,”
According to Bryson, a similar effect with both temperature and humidity as well, where increasing the temperature and humidity or both are generally less favourable to the virus.
“Suppose we hit the body with a tremendous ultraviolet or just very powerful light,” Trump said, following Bryan’s presentation.
Researchers could also bring “the light inside the body,” Trump said, “either through the skin or in some other way.”
“I think that hasn’t been checked but you’re going to test it,” he added.
