Indonesia, through the Bengkulu Provincial Government, chose a Made in Italy technology for the sanitation of all kinds of environments and the mitigation of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The transaction, worth 240 million euros over 5 years, concerns a first supply of about 120,000 latest generation air purifiers equipped with UVGI technology. UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) is the technology inside the device for sanitizing environments and is also considered a valid countermeasure for bacteriological attacks (BWAs).
All devices provided to Indonesian government are able to inactivate Sars-Cov-2, through the damage mechanism of the DNA / RNA helixes of the Virus with UV-C technology. The phenomenon involves damage to the DNA chain and, consequently, the blocking of DNA replication during cell duplication.
This technology was developed and patented by Extra Corporeal Solutions S.r.l., based in Salerno (Italy), a leading company in the R&D of innovative solutions in the healthcare industry.
