The efficacy and safety of UVC disinfection in decreasing hospital acquired infections in a tertiary trauma centre and state adult burns centre

The efficacy of ultraviolet-C technology (UVC) as a disinfection tool is widely accepted. These devices deliver a measured dose of UV energy that inactivates DNA and RNA through absorption of photons resulting in formation of pyrimidine dimers from thymine and cytosine and destroys microorganisms. This is of particular significance since the emergence of a global coronavirus pandemic in 2019 (COVID 19).
