MRSA, Staph, E.Coli, C. Diff, HIV and Other Harmful Viruses and Bacteria Overview

There can be no doubt that there are many viruses and bacteria in the world that can negatively impact human health. The bad news is that killing some of these viruses and bacteria can prove to be amazingly difficult. The good news is that there is a highly-effective way to eradicate these harmful and nasty health issues.

This is where UVC and UVC Services come into play. Through the proven power and effectiveness of UVC, you can eliminate such harmful health problems as MRSA, staph, c.diff, e.coli, HIV and a range of other harmful viruses and bacteria. The bottom line is that UVC is amazingly effective and has been proven reliable in a wide range of conditions for over a century.


MRSA has become an increasingly troubling threat to public health. There is a good reason that you likely only know MRSA by its abbreviation. MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It is a bacterium that is extremely difficult to treat. MRSA has developed a strong resistance to antibiotics, and it is of great concern for those with weakened immune systems or who are at a great risk of infection.

Increasingly, institutions, such as hospitals, nursing homes, locker rooms, prisons and schools, are turning their attention to ways of addressing this serious public health issue. The reason is that MRSA can spread quickly in close quarters, and again it is difficult to treat. However, it is important to note that UVC is highly effective in sanitizing areas for MRSA.


Staph, or staphylococcus, is a genus that includes over 40 different species, the vast majority of which are completely harmless. Staph can be found on human skin as well as in other organisms as well. Staph is a Gram-positive bacteria and it can be toxic and even life-threatening.


Escherichia coli, or E. coli, is a Gram-negative bacterium commonly found in the lower intestines of warm-blooded animals such as humans. E.coli is a commonly found “gut bacteria.” Food poisoning is often the result of exposure to E.coli. Complicating issues is the fact that E.coli can survive for extended periods of time outside of a host. Infections from “fecal-oral transmission” can result in illness.


Clostridium difficile, or C. diff, is a common cause of diarrhea as well as other intestinal problems and can be toxic. The typical transmission route for C. diff is from person to person by the fecal-oral route; however, it is quite possible for C. diff to thrive on surfaces as well. C. diff is a gram-positive bacteria of the genus Clostridium.

Hospitals and nursing homes frequently have issues with patients who ingest C. diff spores. Symptoms can include flu-like symptoms as well as diarrhea. These spores may form on surfaces and are also often quite resistant to traditional forms of cleaning. It is of paramount importance for medical institutions, such as hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and other medical facilities, to take measures to properly sterilize for C. diff. UVC technology is highly effective in killing C. diff on surfaces when other methods of cleaning have failed.

Other viruses, such as HIV and a truly amazing number of viruses and bacteria, are all found in locations such as hospitals, nursing homes, military barracks, locker rooms, prisons, schools and other areas where there are large concentrations of people. Luckily, UVC technology is very effective in cleaning surfaces and removing these significant and potentially life-threatening bacteria and viruses.
