Last week, I had a fascinating conversation with Dr. Darren Verebelyi, president of CoScientific, about UVC light disinfection and its power to fight COVID-19 germs, particularly in hard to reach places. I was delighted when he agreed to write an article for us because steps we take now will help determine our future.
In a recent article for WebMD where he warns “This Fall Could Be ‘Worst’ We’ve Seen,” Dr. Robert Redfield, CDC director, states, “Now as fall approaches, the outbreak’s severity will depend on Americans following CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19: wearing face masks, staying 6 feet away from others, washing hands often with soap and warm water, and being smart about crowd gatherings.
“I’m not asking some of America to do it — we all have to do it,” Redfield said. “This is one of those interventions where 95% to 99% of people have to do it for it to work.” The payoff is great — our lives are at stake.
Looking at another threat, Mike Sheldrick writes an interesting article: As Vehicles Become More Connected, New Methods to Hack Them Emerge. “The cybersecurity professionals have their work cut out for them”, Sheldrick warns, “with nearly all vehicles connected to the internet, the door has opened wider to hackers.”
Our thoughts are for the safety of folks in the paths of Hurricane Laura in the Gulf and the devastating fires in California.
