Increased sunlight exposure can lower COVID-19 deaths: Study


Increased sunlight exposure can lower COVID-19 deaths The coronavirus has been raging all over again in the summer. Meanwhile, a recent retrospective analysis showed that higher sunlight exposure can lower COVID-19 deaths.

Those who are living in sunny regions with the highest levels of UV-A rays are associated with fewer Corona Virus deaths, University of Edinburgh experts say.

Increased sunlight exposure can lower COVID-19 deaths

UV-A radiation accounts for 95% of sunlight and absorbs into the skin deeply, in the inner layers. UV-C radiation against the coronavirus proved effective, although it does not penetrate the surface of the earth and must be generated.

This research, which was published in the British Journal, compares simultaneously with UV levels in 2.474 US counties all of Covid-19’s confirmed deaths in the continental US between January and April 2020. The study was then replicated with the same findings in England and Italy.

Earlier studies have shown that SARS-CoV-2 has rapidly been inactivated under the sun, but more recent studies have concluded that UV-B radiation alone cannot justify the inactivation of the new coronavirus by the sun.

The reported decrease in threat of Covid-19 death, according to the researchers, could not explain higher vitamin D levels. The report then only included areas where UV-B levels were insufficient.

The researchers attributed the low number of deaths from Covid-19 in the skin to the nitrogen oxide emitted from the sun. The chemical compound will restrict the replication of SARS-ability to CoV-2, as has been observed in some laboratory experiments.
