UR-UVGI Upper Room Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation
UVGI using UVC can be used to disinfect air with prolonged exposure. In the 1930s and 40s, an experiment in public schools in Philadelphia showed that upper-room ultraviolet fixtures could significantly reduce the transmission of measles among students. In 2020, UR-UVGI is again being researched and deployed as a countermeasure against the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is generally accepted that new AP-UVGI Far-UVC air disinfection applications are more effective and the safest application of UVGI in occupied spaces.
