Phototherapy Guidelines Post-Quarantine

As a general rule, risks and benefits of doing phototherapy should be weighed. Once a decision to start/resume phototherapy has been made, the following will serve as guidelines when operating a phototherapy center. These may be modified as may be deemed fit, depending on the individual needs of the specific phototherapy center

Guidelines on UV Disinfection

With the advent of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) has received renewed interest after years of underutilization. But with renewed interest comes questions about its usage, safety and efficacy. However, since SARS-CoV-2 is a novel virus, the standards for its use against this virus have not been set. Studies all over the world are being done and hopefully in the coming months, improved efficacy and safety standards will be in place.
