"The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed many of our behaviours and
attitudes towards infection control.

Hand hygiene was one of the earliest and most adopted measures to counteract
the spread of disease, but there have been more technology-based approaches,

One example is the booming industry of devices that use ultraviolet radiation
(UV) to kill germs. While UV can successfully sanitise the air, or objects such
as your smartphone, it can also come with cancer risk if the radiation is not
behind a proper barrier.

Here’s what you need to know about UV sanitation devices."
