Local government units are imposing special lockdowns and curfews to help curb the alarming rise in coronavirus cases, issuing supplemental guidelines on the implementation of General Community Quarantine. These include a city-wide 10pm to 5am curfew, banning of liquor, and requiring workplaces and establishments to conduct frequent and thorough disinfection of high-touch objects and equipment such as elevator buttons, counters, door handles, and railings. According to the circular issued by Quezon City LGU, the use of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) devices is "strongly recommended" for this purpose.
When it comes to UVGI devices, the first brand that comes to mind is UV Care. Even pre-pandemic, UV Care effective systems and solutions have already been widely used in hospitals, institutions, and commercial establishments like shopping malls, ensuring the wellness and safety of the public.
UV Care is US EPA and US FDA registered as well as an active member of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA). The brand has air purifiers, portable sterilizers, surface and room sterilizers, escalator handrail sterilizers and other products and solutions that are effective in different settings for killing microorganisms and bacteria.
How UV Care works
UV Care effective devices work using powerful ultraviolet light, which represents a portion of the sun’s electromagnetic spectrum. Germicidal UV is a term used to describe UV-C whose light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and destroys their ability to multiply and cause disease. UV Care products, when used as directed, are completely safe. Careful responsible use will result in total safety.
Just some of the establishments that trust and use UV Care are The Medical City, St. Luke's Medical Center, Ayala Malls, SM Supermalls, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, Rockwell Malls, The Alpha Suites, Alphaland Balesin Island Club, Araneta Gateway Cineplex, Unilab, Wyeth, Unilever, PLDT, Shangri-la Hotels and Resorts, BDO, Amanpulo and many others.
As a brand, UV Care is effective because it’s been tried, tested and trusted by institutions to keep healthcare establishments, malls, offices and other environments safe, healthy and germ-free.
UV Care devices clean and sterilize objects and surfaces without the use of chemicals; kill up to 99.9% of harmful bacteria, viruses, germs, allergens as well as mold, dust mites, fleas, bed bugs and their eggs; and are laboratory tested and approved by doctors. It is also US FDA and US EPA registered.
