Answer: Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a very popular method of killing airborne germs and bacteria. It can reduce almost 50% of aerial microorganism in 45 minutes. The device that uses this process emits UV rays of short-wavelength. The ultraviolet (UV-C) destroy the nucleic acids and disrupt DNA. This disables these organisms to perform vital cellular functions.
