Urgent Care: March, April Saw Massive Decline In ER Visits

Data from more than 20 emergency rooms across five states seems to confirm anecdotal reports from health care workers.

According to Gizmodo, emergency rooms across the US saw a massive decline in visits in March and April.

The study speculates the decline was possibly due to people fearing they'd contract the novel coronavirus COVID-19 if they sought medical care.

ER data from Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and North Carolina were included in the study.

Researchers Find Light Frequency That Kills COVID-19 Virus Without Harming Humans

Gizmodo reports scientists have discovered a specific wavelength of UV light that’s both safe for people and can kill coronaviruses, both on surfaces and in the air. Researchers from Columbia University and Japan's Hiroshima University, have found that a UVC light wave of 222 nanometers does the trick. It's unable to penetrate the eye’s tear layer or the dead-cell layer of skin, preventing it from reaching and damaging living cells in the human body.
