In addition to that, he noted that they are building units as quickly as they can to meet up with the demand. He has also highlighted that GermFalcon can clean a typical narrow-body aircraft in three minutes.

CHEO Research Institute in Canada has looked at using UV-C to disinfect personal protective equipment such as N95 masks, but not surfaces. However, the University of California Santa Barbara, Seoul Semiconductor Co Ltd has reported 99% sterilization of coronavirus in 30 seconds on surfaces.
