GOOD NEWS – SUNSHINE KILLS CORONAVIRUS!

The Coronavirus is destroyed by ultraviolet rays from the sun. This was announced by a top U.S. official at a briefing from the White House coronavirus task force. On April 23, 2020, William Bryan, science and technology advisor to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary, said in a press briefing, that sunlight has a significant impact on the Coronavirus.

Solar light along with high temperatures and humidity have a “powerful effect” of creating environments less favorable for the virus to survive. Regarding sunshine, Bryan says, "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."

A chart released by during the White House coronavirus task force by the DHS, showed that the novel coronavirus dies within two minutes in hot sunshine and humidity while on surfaces, and a minute and a half while in the air.
