Can Sunlight, Heat and Humidity kill Coronavirus?

first_imgDHS officials say sunlight, heat and humidity may have a “powerful” impact on killing the coronavirus within seconds.William Bryan, science and technology adviser to the Department of Homeland Security, told reporters at the White House on Thursday that government scientists found ultraviolet rays had a potent impact on the pathogen, offering hope its spread may ease over the summer.“The virus dies quickest in the presence of direct sunlight,” Bryan said.“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,” he added. “We’ve seen a similar effect with both temperature and humidity as well, where increasing the temperature and humidity or both is generally less favorable to the virus.”It has long been known that ultraviolet light has a sterilizing effect, because the radiation damages the virus’s genetic material and its ability to replicate.According to U.S. officials, an experiment shows UV rays destroy COVID-19 both on surfaces and in air. And coronavirus dies the fastest when exposed to direct sunlight, although the study cited has not yet been made public and awaits external evaluation.But coronavirus has also proven lethal in warm-weather places such as Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, raising broader questions about the impact of environmental factors.Bryan warned it would be “irresponsible” to say the warmer summer months will eliminate the virus. But he said that time period would provide an “opportunity to get ahead” of the pandemic.A key question will be what the intensity and wavelength of the UV light used in the experiment was, and whether this accurately mimics natural light conditions in summer.Past studies have not found reliable evidence that warmer temperatures and the higher humidity of spring and summer will help tamp down the spread of the virus.Bryan shared a slide summarizing the major findings of an experiment carried out at the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center in Maryland.On nonporous surfaces such as stainless steel, the new coronavirus takes 18 hours to lose half its strength in a dark, low-humidity environment, Bryan said.In a high-humidity environment, that half-life dropped to six hours, and when the virus was exposed to high humidity and sunlight, the half-life dropped to two minutes, he said.Researchers found a similar effect with the coronavirus that was suspended in the air – simulating the coughing or sneezing that often spreads the disease. In a dark room, the virus maintained half its strength for an hour.But when exposed to sunlight, it lost half its strength in 90 seconds, Bryan said.Researchers also found that isopropyl alcohol was a more effective disinfectant than bleach, he added.last_img read more

Giggs hopeful of full recovery for stricken mentor Ferguson

first_img0Shares0000Ryan Giggs was part of all 13 of Alex Ferguson’s Premier League winning sides © AFPLondon, United Kingdom, May 6 – Manchester United’s most decorated player Ryan Giggs led another day of well wishes from the world of football for his legendary former manager Alex Ferguson following the Scot’s emergency surgery on a brain haemorrhage.Considered the most successful manager in the history of British football, Ferguson, 76, won 38 trophies in just over 26 years in charge of United, including 13 Premier League titles and the Champions League twice before retiring in 2013. United have offered no update on Ferguson’s condition since saying a procedure on the haemorrhage on Saturday had gone “very well”, but that a period of intensive care is needed to optimise his recovery.Wales manager Giggs was part of all 13 of Ferguson’s title-winning sides in a 24-year playing career at Old Trafford.“Now is the time to pray and hope he can make a full recovery,” Giggs told BBC Wales.“He has been the biggest influence in my career, both on and off the pitch.“I know the operation has been a success – but he is a fighter and that is what makes me think that he will be able to make a recovery.”United defender Phil Jones is also positive on Ferguson’s chances of making a full recovery, despite admitting to being “devastated” by the news of his ill health.“(I am) just devastated, absolutely devastated,” said Jones, who was signed for United by Ferguson in 2011.A global impact: messages have poured in from around the world wishing former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery following emergency for a brain haemorrhage © AFP/File / Ben STANSALL“He is such a legend in my eyes. He is the one who brought me to the club and gave me that opportunity to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world. He’s taken me under his wing like a father and it was shocking.“It’s sad, but I know his character. I know he has that fight in him. Hopefully he’ll recover well.”United midfielder Juan Mata admitted news of Ferguson’s condition had a “huge impact” on the current squad.“This circumstance has had a huge impact on Manchester United, as you can imagine,” Mata wrote in his blog.“All of us are united right now, wishing Sir Alex a speedy recovery. He has been a unique and fundamental figure in the football world over the last few decades.”United thanked the many well-wishers, including the likes of rival managers Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, who spoke of their admiration for Ferguson.– ‘Strong man’ –Wenger enjoyed a long, and at times fractious rivalry with Ferguson as they battled for Premier League supremacy in the first decade of the Frenchman’s 22-year reign in charge of Arsenal. However, they later became friends and with Wenger leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, Ferguson presented his old adversary with a memento on his final visit to United’s Old Trafford ground just last weekend.Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger enjoyed an epic rivalry with Alex Ferguson on the pitch, but was among those to wish the Scot a speedy recovery © AFP / Paul ELLIS“I was with him on the pitch last week. I went to see him in the box after the game and he looked in perfect shape,” said Wenger, after his final home game as Arsenal boss.“He told me he is doing a lot of exercise, and he looked very happy but that kind of accident can happen. We wish him all well and to recover very quickly. He is a strong man and an optimistic man.”Sunday saw runaway winners Manchester City receive the Premier League trophy. But local rivalries were forgotten as a banner was held aloft by City fans reading: “Football aside get well Fergie” as supporters spilled onto the pitch at full-time of a scoreless draw with Huddersfield.“All the Manchester City fans in the stadium, you cannot find one person who does not wish the best for an amazing person,” said City boss Guardiola.On the streets of Manchester on Monday there was huge respect from both sets of fanbases for Ferugson’s achievements.“He will always be the greatest manager in Premier League history – and I’m saying that as a City fan,” Dan Holland told AFP. “I’ve got mad respect for him.”Giggs was just one of many youngsters that Ferguson nurtured from the United academy to stardom on the international stage.“He’s taken English football to the pinnacle of world football. The amount of trophies he won not just nationally, but internationally, all the European Cups he’s won as well,” said United fan Ben Montgomery.“Also the fact he’s brought talents to England and shown that you can actually use homegrown talent right through to the first team – look at David Beckham for example.”Ferguson famously described his mission upon joining United from Aberdeen in 1986 as knocking Liverpool “off their perch”.He duly did so as United overtook Liverpool as the most successful side in English domestic football.“When I heard the news yesterday I really couldn’t believe this could happen. He is absolutely the boss,” said Liverpool manager Klopp after his side’s 1-0 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday. “I wish him the best.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
