GERMii UV-C Pathogen Mitigation helping combat COVID-19

The Governor toured the facilities at GERMii who specialise in the application of proven UV-C sanitisation technology, to fight against the current COVID-19 virus and future known pathogens, to protect staff and customers in transit and in the workplace.

Met by Mr Harold Van Haltren, CEO, Germii, the Governor was told about GERMii’s technique which uses UV-C light at a particular frequency, based on GERMii research, that has been independently verified as being the most effective way to combat COVID-19 from surfaces. This negates dangerous and also ineffective sanitisation methods (chemical fogging) for COVID-19.

Anticipated health challenges and responding accordingly, GERMii became a national company after only 126 days, and as at June 2020, was selling 200 units of their sanitation lights a week around the country from their premises in Malaga, to keep people safe and businesses operating.
