SARS-CoV-2 UV Dose-Response Behavior by IUVA

SARS-CoV-2 (aka the novel coronavirus) is the virus that causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Transmission of COVID-19 appears to be largely associated with airborne particles that may be released by symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals who have been infected by SARS-CoV-2,1 although it is also known that the virus can remain infective on surfaces for as much as 24-72 hours, depending on the material it is contact with,2 so contact with surfaces represents another possible mechanism of disease transfer.
