Homemade sterilizer box for protective gear during Covid19 pandemic

Shared by sara.di.fabio@p... on 2020-03-27 11:28

About the solution

Because of the rapid spreading of the coronavirus infection, there is a worldwide shortage of personal protective gear. Usually, protective gears should be used one time only, but Erik is proposing a sterilization box to reuse the equipment until production steps up again.

The European Union recommends the use of UV-C light for sterilization. A sterilization box can be built at home for your protective gears and objects.

Some precautions are necessary, because UV-C light causes skin cancer, Erik recommends to always close the lid of the box before turning on the UV-C light.
