One of those things is ultraviolet light, or UV light. If you didn't know, UV light has the capability of killing SARS-CoV-2 primarily on surfaces. So how does it work?

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
