COVID-19 is rapidly spreading. Millions are on lock down around the world. And everywhere there is a shortage of personal protective gear. Therefore single-use equipment needs to be sterilized and reused. That is not how it should be, but it is your best chance to protect yourself until production is stepped up. The European Union recommends the use of UV-C light for sterilization. For a mere 30 bucks you can build a UV-C sterilizer yourself to alter protective gear and daily needs e.g. smartphones, keys, toothbrushes and more.
Caution: UV-C light causes skin cancer! Always close the lid of your box before you turn on the UV-C light. For more information see the European commision’s factsheet.
