A Library in Central Java has made a machine they call the Dropbox to sanitize books with UV light. UV light believes to have the properties to kill the virus in surfaces and droplets in the air.

is that books could send COVID-19 through direct contact or droplets that may fall
Formed like a file organizer, the Dropbox estimates 130 by 75 by 75 centimeters. It comprises of six drawers, and each fits 14 books. The books are warmed for 24 hours at 40 degrees Celsius and presented to UV beams for 10 minutes. The books orchestrate with the goal that each gets an equivalent measure of radiation.
Dropbox also furnishes with programmed temperature control, which will kill the five lights inside the machine if it surpasses 40 degrees Celsius.
Dropbox is under preliminary. The organization had used it for weeks to “isolate” books that are back. “We will assess the outcomes to see whether UV light can influence the books’ conditions or change their hues,” Fuad said.
