This study conducted at the Tel Aviv University has proven that 99.9% of the COVID-19 virus can be killed cheaply and within 30 seconds by using UV light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) at specific frequencies.

Ultraviolet radiation is a common method of killing bacteria and viruses. Now, researchers from Tel Aviv University have proven that the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, can be killed efficiently, quickly and cheaply using ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting diodes (UV-LEDs) at specific frequencies.
“We discovered that it is quite simple to kill the coronavirus using LED bulbs that radiate ultraviolet light,” said Prof. Hadas Mamane, head of the Environmental Engineering Program at Tel Aviv University’s School of Mechanical Engineering, who led the study with Prof. Continue Reading »
According to the OECD Israel is the country investing the most resources into Research and Development (R&D). R&D comprises of creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of human knowledge and to devise new applications based upon it. The World Economic Forum describes R&D as “the bedrock of innovation.”

Research and development is the bedrock of innovation. A big investment in R&D indicates a thriving and entrepreneurial industrial spirit, and figures from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) highlight the countries spending the most – and least – on this important driver of economic growth, which covers three activities: basic research, applied research and experimental development.
