A United Nations-supported scientific research center cooperated with an Italian technology company to explore the possibility of using laser light to kill the Corona virus فيروسThe idea is to kill coronavirus particles suspended in the air, and help keep indoor spaces safeThe joint effort between the International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in Trieste, a city in northern Italy, and Eltech K-Laser began last year when COVID-19 was sweeping the country.

The center and the technology company invented a device that pushes the air through a sterilization room that contains a laser beam filter that kills viruses and bacteria”The device has proven its ability to kill viruses in less than 50 milliseconds,” said Serena Zackinia, head of the center’s cardiovascular biology group.

Zakinia collaborated with Italian engineer Francesco Zanata, founder of Eltech K-Laser, a medical laser company whose products are used by sports stars to treat sore muscles and fractures.

Some experts have warned of the potential risks of using light-based technology to attack the virus that causes COVID-19A study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology in November 2020 sheds light on concerns ranging from potential cancer risks to the prohibitive cost of light sources.

But Zakenia and Zanata ruled out any health problems, and said that the laser never touches human skin.

“Our device uses nature versus nature,” Zanata told ReutersIt is 100 percent safe for individuals and almost completely recyclable.

”However, this technology does not kill viruses and bacteria when they fall from the air on surfaces or the ground, nor does it prevent direct infection when an infected person sneezes or speaks loudly near another.

The company (Eltech K-laser) obtained a patent from the Italian authorities and seeks to spread this technology globally
