Nova Scotia researchers to test whether UV light reduces COVID-19 at long-term care homes

Nova Scotia researchers are launching a $1.7-million project to test whether ultraviolet (UV) lights installed in long-term care facilities will reduce COVID-19 and other infections among residents. Previous studies have shown that germicidal UV light effectively kills seasonal coronaviruses, and there are now Canadian companies selling UV light disinfection systems.
