New Machine Kills Ebola Virus With UV Light

Posted on Oct 16, 2014
Could this machine prevent the Ebola virus from reaching epidemic proportions?

The recent spread of the Ebola virus into the United States has caused some to fear a global pandemic. According to the World Health Organization, the Ebola virus kills 70 percent of people who contract the disease. WHO also estimates that there could be up to 10,000 new cases per week in two months.

Clearly, something needs to be done to keep the disease from spreading. The Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot, referred to as “Little Moe,” could be the perfect solution.

An article on titled “Ultraviolet light robot kills Ebola in two minutes; why doesn’t every hospital have one of these? “ explains how the machine uses specific frequencies of UV light to quickly destroy virtually any virus, including Ebola, in minutes.

Ebola is considered a “vampire virus” because it spreads in dark places and feeds off human blood. The UV light ruins the virus’ RNA, rendering it “dead,” though viruses aren’t technically alive in the first place.

Better yet, the machine leaves no toxic chemical residue behind, making it ideal for hospitals to use when sanitizing rooms. Currently, many hospitals use harmful chemicals like mercury to clean rooms. These harsh chemicals can harm hospital patients and staff even after a room has been sanitized.

Furthermore, previous methods of hospital room sanitization take hours to complete. Since they use harmful chemicals, it’s not safe to go into the room until a few hours after the chemicals have been applied. But “Little Moe” needs just ten minutes to clean a room and kills the Ebola virus in about 2 minutes.

The machine is already used by 250 hospitals and some have reported as much as a 62 percent reduction in bacterial bugs and viral strains. In the big picture, this technology could prove invaluable in the fight against Ebola and other deadly “superbugs.”
