Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) along with AMESYS INDIA has developed ‘Suraksha’, a microorganism decontamination box.Both UVC light and heat are used in the box and it can sanitize an object in 10-15 minutes.
In the wake of coronavirus spread, the fear of contracting the infection from touching anything has grown. Nowadays, as a precautionary measure, people are wiping doors, handles, and switches repeatedly.
Recently, two students of IIT Guwahati built a device that can be used to disinfect objects. The duo–Shubham Yennawar and Anant Mittal– made the nano Ultra-Violet (UV) device i.e. the UV Astra, which is capable of sterilising any surface and can kill bacteria within a few seconds.
