Buses undergo UV disinfection in China during COVID-19 outbreak

A public transport firm in Shanghai has turned to technology to disinfect its buses every day.

Armed with 210 ultraviolet tubes, the company, Yanggao, converted a regular cleaning room into a UV light disinfection chamber, which condenses a 40-minute cleaning process down to five minutes.

The ultraviolet disinfection method is efficient and less time-consuming, as well as requiring less labor and disinfection costs. Secondly, it disinfects thoroughly and kills more than 99.9 percent of viruses. Thirdly, it doesn't corrode buses – it is a purely physical disinfection method.
