    Mustard gas kills Covid 19.   It also kills the host(you) - which is it's downside.  Same can be said for nuclear radiation...big DOWNSIDE.

     FAR-UVC lights can be used to kill viruses on certain surfaces, and they've been around for a few years. The newer ones are marketed as 'safer for mammalian skin.' No good for people, but fine for scanning keyboards and such.

    No LED lamp will destroy coronavirus.

    There is only one type of UV light that can destroy coronavirus and it is extremely dangerous to people. There is only the smallest amount of ultraviolet light in LED lighting .. not enough to be dangerous to you and not enough to kill viruses or bacteria.

    And LED light is NOT considered ultraviolet light.

    You have been scammed.

      There are specialized LEDs for UV and used in polymerization or curing adhesives.  https://www.photoelcuring.com/en/product/spot-led-15/

    This is the danger of the internet.  It's irresponsible to post things like this.

    I should think self-immolation does the trick too, but that too is not without its side effects.

    There’s only one type of UV that can reliably inactivate Covid-19 – and it’s extremely dangerous.

    BUNK! no such device has been tested or approved by FDA. Do NOT fall for this sales pitch. Any such claim is bogus.

    Source(s): grampa -- a company i own shares in controls all of the relevant patents in this area and thus, I'd know if FDA had approved such a thing.

      Nobody said anything about FDA approval, genius.  UV-radiating LEDs have been around for awhile.

    The problem with that lamp is that it's pretty much an intense UV tanning light in way of the effect on people.

    Sure it can kill viruses, but it could also cause other health problems. Eye Damage being one of the possible problems.

    They need to use such lights for sanitizing the things and surfaces we touch...but should not be used on people.

      Many such LEDs are used  for UV radiation in enclosed industrial or medical processes.

    It only works if the lamp shines on the virus. It’s impossible to shine on every nook and cranny.
