This may seem like a bizarre post coming from a pool builder in San Antonio, but I can't help and think that something is missing from the current battle plan.
What I believe might offer a change is some offense alongside our defense.
What if we weren't just chasing and tracking this virus, but also hunting and killing it at the same time?
While I've written about UV light and it's ability to sanitize pools, it's also known that a much higher level of UV tech exists within the medical industry.
And from what we've studied, the best manufacturer of these units is located right here in San Antonio.
We're speaking of UV emitting robots.
If these robotic microorganism assassins were placed in high trafficked areas that were probable places where multiple infections could likely be occuring due to our human patterns, we might very well reduce transmission.
I'm spitballing here, but running these things on a repetitive schedule through airports, planes, hospitals, ambulances, nursing homes, etc, while continuing to use common sense measures like hand washing in conjunction with these robotic soldiers seems pretty logical.
While I'm definitely no expert, if the technology exists and is proven to work, why not use it.
Maybe I'm wrong, but if there's validity to what I'm suggesting, I hope those wiser than I take a look at how these can be used.
