===== New 200mW UVC 265nm LED to replace Mercury Lamps ===== The next couple of months should see the worlds first 200mW UVGI LED come to market which imo will be powerful enough to use to replace traditional Mercury Vapor lamps in bigger industrial water disinfection and also in a variety of Air disinfection applications/ settings. April 7th 2021 Stanley 265nm 200mW UV-C LED Targeting on Flowing Water Disinfection, Air Purification and Surface Sterilization Markets hTtps:// IMO this is a precursor of many more powerful UVC LED's using new technologies coming to market in 2021. As yet another wave of Covid-19 is now once more spreading across the world via aerosol transmission --- never has the need for UVC technologies to kill the virus in the air --- within seconds --- been so great UVC 265nm LED's of 200mW and above that use new silicone optics/ lens technology that focuses the forwards radiation to a maximum ( just also released ) hTtp:// Together with other newly discovered techniques that maximize the killing power of UVC within air ducts will imo now give the power required to kill the Covid-19 virus within circa 2ft --- in less than 1 second within air conditioning and HVAC ducts .
======== 47 passengers catch Covid-19 in one single airline flight ======== buywell is not a fan of flying just now , as aerosols carrying the Covid-19 virus in aerosol form stay in the air of the plane for hours and spread circa 14 metres either side of a speader as folks walk past up and down the aisles wafting the aerosols about This proves it is happening: A record number of 47 passengers on a flight to Hong Kong have now tested positive for COVID-19 despite testing clear before leaving New Delhi India The 47 passengers who travelled on Vistara Air flight UK6395 from New Delhi to Hong Kong on April 4 have all tested positive for COVID-19 despite providing negative pre-departure test certificates to secure their place on the flight. As many as 25 of the infected passengers tested positive within the first 11 days of them being in Hong Kong with a further 22 passengers tested positive following routine sampling on day 12 of a 21 day quarantine So there could yet be more cases htTps:// If ever there was a single plane example needed , to follow the princess Cruise ship debacle of Covid-19 cases within an enclosed environment --- sharing the same air, ie aerosol spread --- this is it UVC --- UVGI --- Far-UVC in Air Con /HVAC is a must to kill these pathogens and stop the spread of Variants worldwide LED's exist now that can do this dyor imo

=========== Covid-19 classified as a brain disease soon ? ============ Disturbing new data is coming out that says 1 in 3 Covid-19 patients are developing mental problems buywell posted on the BUY thread over 6 months ago that the fact people were losing their sense of smell could mean the virus was getting via the nose to the brain --- The implications are dire hTtps:// The killing of the virus in public indoor settings is ever more urgent buywell agrees with Kumar 100% Catching Covid-19 just once can lead to a lifetime of misery Here is a study that points to why Once viral infections reach the brain, they trigger an inflammatory response that can persist indefinitely, causing ongoing damage. "The brain is one of the regions where virus likes to hide," he said, because it cannot mount the kind of immune response that can clear viruses from other parts of the body. "That's why we're seeing severe disease and all these multiple symptoms like heart disease, stroke and all these long-haulers with loss of smell, loss of taste," Kumar said. "All of this has to do with the brain rather than with the lungs." htTps:// The fact that aerosol spread via the nose has NOT been recognized as a major cause of Covid-19 transmission is nothing short of crass stupidity imo Disinfection of infected Covid-19 virus riddled air in public indoor settings , both buildings and transport is meaning children and adults are catching an aerosol born disease which can cause 1 in 3 people most probably ongoing brain damage for the rest of their lives Disinfection by UV-C UVGI and Far UVC is urgently needed on all air conditioning systems and HVAC systems with additional LED UVC Lighting that does the same ---- kills the covid-19 virus 24/7 Before the Healthcare burden becomes unsustainable
==== Germicidal Ultra violet light (UVGI) has been successfully used before ==== Measles , Chicken Pox and TB to name but three instances (there are more ) going back to the 1940's/50's where UVGI was successfully put to work in Schools and Hospitals Dec 1943 --- Paper titled Air Disinfection in Day Schools ---- author W.F.Wells The first sentence of this paper reads: “The prevalence of respiratory infection during the season of indoor congregation suggests a natural relationship between ventilation and communicable disease." UVC in NY schools modified the spread of measles/chicken pox (Perkins et al. 1947) "We found that among different engineering control measures, UVGI singly is the optimal strategy combined with effective isolation and vaccination interventions for containing influenza, measles, and chickenpox." ( Liao et al. 2008 ) " Addition of germicidal UV lights can significantly increase air changes without HVAC modifications " ( Emmerich et al. 2013 ) Paper titled : " Safety of Upper-Room Ultraviolet Germicidal Air Disinfection for Room Occupants: Results from the Tuberculosis Ultraviolet Shelter Study " ( Nardellet al. 2008 ) Conclusions: " These findings demonstrate that careful application of upper-room UVGI can be achieved without an apparent increase in the incidence of the most common side effects of accidental UV overexposure. " htTps:// Paper titled : Comparison of UV C Light and Chemicals for Disinfection of Surfaces in Hospital Isolation Units • ( Bjørg Marit Andersen 2006 ) " Disinfection with UVC light may significantly reduce environmental bacterial contamination and thereby protect the next patient housed in an isolation room. UVC disinfection may not be used alone but is a good addition to chemical disinfection." htTps:// Paper titled : UV-C surface/air cleaning technology ( Anderson et al. 2017 ) “Patients admitted to rooms previously occupied by patients harbouringa multidrug-resistant organism or C difficile were 10–30% less likely to acquire the same organism if the room was terminally disinfected using an enhanced strategy. The largest risk reduction occurred when a UV-C device was added to the standard disinfectant strategy." htTps:// The reticence of present incumbents of the WHO the CDC and Government politicians in fully adopting UVGI disinfection measures that have been successfully used time and time again to kill various pathogens in Hospitals and Schools is nothing short of criminal. UVGI disinfection technology works and whilst UVGI mercury vapor lamps are still around today , operating at 254nm wavelength --- 265nm wavelength LED's have recently been manufactured that can do the job safer and more efficiently than the older technology mercury vapor lamps. Aerosol spread of Covid-19 has still not been recognized as the main driver of this pandemic Why Not ? Because when it is --- a whole raft of safety guidance measures will need to be issued on how to minimize breathing in the virus of others
Developments: ==== Major USA Company releases aerosol Covid-19 virus room tester ==== Thermo Fisher : March 25th 2021 Thermo Fisher deploys sensors for detecting airborne COVID-19 htTps:// The market aimed at by Thermo Fisher being : Schools and Hospitals , Offices and Care/Nursing homes and other locations that experience high-traffic and would benefit from surveillance for elevated levels for SARS-CoV-2 and other airborne pathogens --------------------------------------------------------------- The USA DEPT OF DEFENSE Sub-tier DEFENSE ADVANCED RESEARCH PROJECTS AGENCY (DARPA) Last November 2020, the above USA Agency began soliciting proposals for research to develop a coronavirus-detecting air sensor, stating the description of the product that was required as : Description The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for improved environmental sensing of pathogens. Sensing SARS-CoV-2 virus in the air with high sensitivity and specificity could provide a new mechanism for public health monitoring, enabling safer conditions for a wide range of basic activities including work, travel, and school. SenSARS aims to identify SARS-CoV-2 signatures suitable for rapid indoor air monitoring and use these signatures to develop and demonstrate a technology readiness level (TRL) 4 prototype sensor. htTps:// buywell comments: Armed Forces worldwide will also want advance warning in their Training facilities/Ships/Planes/Canteens/Buildings and all indoor spaces where troops congregate of Covid-19 virus or other pathogens. So testing equipment is now on sale and many more Covid-19/Pathogen testers will be hitting markets in the next few months AND start to give positive results but what then ? Having identified the problem of aerosol virus all that can be done is close the place/facility down for weeks and allow the virus to deactivate or to disinfect and retest IMO such testers are the forerunners that will lead to widespread air disinfection implementation to work 24/7 and then the testers will start to keep recording negative results To stop lockdowns and economic strife; to keep critical services , schools and Hospitals, offices and factories , Supermarkets and shops , Restaurants and Pubs , Cinemas and leisure facilities , open for business Both Covid-19/Pathogen Testers and UV/UVGI/Far-UVC Disinfection equipment will be needed working continuously The advent of these testers will imo focus attention on the aerosol transmission problem and force Authorities to do something about it htTps://
When BIG companies are making MEGA losses some smaller companies are making money How many companies in their final results , would like to say that cash ended the year at $2.6 million, representing an increase of $1.1 million. 25/03/2021 07:00 UKREG ProPhotonix Limited Results for the year ended December 31, 2020 Tim Losik, President & CEO, commented: Financial "Overall, we are pleased with the year 2020. Though our revenue declined by 9%, largely from Covid-19, we were able to mitigate the reduction with an outstanding result. Most importantly, cash ended the year at $2.6 million, representing an increase of $1.1 million. The balance sheet strengthened not only from the increase in cash but also from a significant reduction in debt of $0.9 million. A measure of this improvement is the current ratio which improved to 2.0 from 1.7. We look forward to the opportunity that the future holds as we come through the pandemic to more prosperous times. Product Development "During 2020, we developed and announced new products including: several variants of the MultiSpec product family addressing the multispectral and hyperspectral industrial markets; a deep UV (UVC, 265 nanometer) FX product targeted to the biomedical and curing markets; several variants of the Prodigii laser product family (from UV to Near Infrared wavelengths) addressing the industrial markets.

===== In the USA -- 36,000 Schools need updates to their HVAC/Air Con Systems ===== htTps:// But that represents only a small Total number of around 130,000 plus American Schools that will be expected to conform to new CDC Guidelines hTtps:// In the light of the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in America where the UK Variant is now spreading to the majority of States, expected to become the Dominant Covid strain within days --- the CDC has just taken action and produced a range of actions to provide cleaner virus free and pathogen free air for kids to breathe and hopefully remain in full time education within a pandemic situation. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now from Feb 26th 2021 announcing a new Covid-19 initiative titled : Ventilation in Schools and Childcare Programs How to use CDC building recommendations in your setting Updated Feb. 26, 2021 The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is now from Feb 26th 2021 stating on its website , under a sub-Heading : Filter and/or clean the air in your school or childcare program. ' Consider using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) in schools and non-home-based childcare programs as a supplemental treatment to inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19, especially if options for increasing ventilation and filtration are limited. Consult a qualified professional to help design and install any UVGI system.' hTtps:// buywell expects such use for UVGI to be recommended soon by the CDC for many other public buildings and forms of pubic transport But keeping kids safe as a starting point is not a bad place to begin htTps:// hTtps://

Cos Covid-19 Variants are here to stay now Humans must learn to live with them and those other viruses that follow How many Airport Check-Ins and how many plastic bins are there to disinfect ? After each use by each passenger
==== Covid-19 caught on a plane then by others in Quarantine is aerosol spread ==== ----- Coronavirus spread on flight, in hotel corridor, New Zealand study finds ----- buywell is amazed that as yet the CDC and WHO and EMA have not bit the bullet and admitted that aerosol spread of the virus is the main driver of this pandemic. This link concerning people in a plane that wore masks and sat 6ft apart with circa 30% plane occupancy caught the virus from a flyer on board Then they went into quarantine in a hotel in NZ and obeyed quarantine rules to stay in their rooms BUT some still caught the virus there also CCTV showing that doors to some rooms having been left open for circa 50 secs allowing aerosol to get into the corridor and then down the corridor to later waft into other rooms of covid clear people also in hotel quarantine thus infecting them. Clear evidence of aerosol spread on the plane and in the hotel hTtps:// Now the thing is the CDC knew about this hTtps:// UV UVC and Far-UVC needed to provide 24/7 disinfection is imo the only solution apart from not breathing

============== Aerosol Spread of the Covid-19 Virus indoors ============== hTtps:// hTtps:// NOT just your own house or flat but ANYWHERE indoors or inside like public transport or classrooms or offices or factories or Hospital wards and operating rooms and waiting rooms There are over 130,000 schools in America with around 36,000 needing new HVAC / Air Conditioning systems or upgrades Over 6,000 Hospitals and 5,000 Universities Many Universities and Hospitals need upgrades or new plan Hardly any have installed UV-C modern Technology as yet because aerosol spread of Covid-19 has not yet been recognized as a major mode of transmission by the WHO and CDC So Michigan State University is doing its own thing Feb. 23, 2021 ======== Using air purification to protect against COVID-19 on campus ========= The photo in the link below shows IPF employee installing UV-C air purification device in Wonders Hall htTps:// Soon it is my opinion that Government subsidies will flow to install UV-C units similar to this and new Far-UVC units into ALL such buildings and public places as well as domestic homes and blocks of flats $ 1 Trillion required in the USA to carry this work out including public transport Buses Trains Ships and Planes , Ambulances and taxis all will need UV-C and Far-UVC to transport passengers safely breathing covid free air and having disinfected seating for the next occupants IMO work will commence once the CDC says aerosol spread is an area of concern regarding Covid-19 transmission Because then safety measures to mitigate against aerosol spread must then follow , prevention by infection control ie disinfection using UV-C and Far-UVC What politicians must note is this : 1) Covid-19 is likely here for good like Flu but unlike flu it is an all year round disease and 24/7 2) Covid-19 also is causing millions of people to acquire Long Covid or Long Haul Covid disease which means they can't return to work in around 50% of cases ( previous SARS study found after 1 year of Hospital discharge ) 3) Experts have predicted that Long Covid costs to Health Services will dwarf those of Arthritis in coming years ( Arthritis being current number one costs ) So the longer prevention measure against aerosol spread are not put in place the greater the ongoing health costs and the more long term unemployed 4) Recent studies have put the number of people acquiring Long Covid as high as 30% of those infected by the virus NOT just those that have had to go into hospital ---- the recent variants are exacerbating this percentage scientists have observed 5) The policy of wait and see if vaccines make the problems go away is meaning more cases and more deaths --- it will not go away because 70% of the world population will never be vaccinated at any one time . Neither will any one country Plus vaccine efficacy is not 100% against variants ie no chance of herd immunity 6) Preparation against the next virus pandemic should by now in full swing BUT it isn't in fact not even started regarding aerosol spread which will almost certainly be a major causation factor in the next pandemic ie another virus My point being monies spent now will protect for decades to come as more zoonotic pandemics follow as they most surely will. Watch the video htTps:// Wearing 2 Masks as Fauci has said is not enough , will the next advice be to wear 3 masks ? hTtps:// htTps://
=========== Covid-19 and its effect on Public Transport ============== Nothing short of catastrophic when numbers of 70% to 80% declines in numbers using buses and trains and boats and planes htTps:// USA and the state of Vermont has been given half a million dollars to test UVC and Far-UVC light-based air filters on public buses to see whether they will improve air quality and protect against coronavirus and other airborne illness. The work scope is stated to involve the testing of two UVC lighting products, far-UVC and UVC, determining efficacy in stopping the spread of COVID-19 compared to current cleaning protocols. hTtps:// Same sort of thing is happening on Underground and Overground trains hTtps:// One can only think that this sort of thing will go countrywide as Covid-19 aerosol spread of the virus is accepted as the main form of transmission by the WHO the CDC and Government
