According to The Australian Financial Review, as Australian infection rates of COVID-19 plummet and business pushes for a return to normal, a Perth-based business created to try to save jobs may enable people to get back to work more quickly and safely.
GERMii was created in February, when founder Shan Patterson realised he needed to reinvent his data and computer disposal business if he wanted to keep staff in work during the pandemic.
He quickly set to work creating a product that could help his corporate clients sterilise their workplaces by using concentrated UV-C light to kill COVID-19 pathogens.
One of his business partners said, “I have an idea based on my experience using UV-C germicidal irradiation technology to sterilise water in villages in PNG", and they adapted that technology to work on hard surfaces rather than water.
The technology is already utilised in hospitals abroad and has proven to be more effective and faster than chemical products in killing the COVID-19 virus, as it kills the entire pathogen immediately.
