As corona infections increase, researchers are working harder to get rid of them. No research says stay at home avoiding human contact. Some studies say that there is no benefit from staying in house because the coronavirus can spread through the air. But people think it is best if the coronavirus can be killed at the time of attack. However, a new study has claimed something like that.

According to researchers, sunlight can be a deadly weapon to kill corona. The study was published in the British Journal of Dermatology. The paper was submitted by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. They worked on the sun's ultraviolet rays in about 2,500 counties from January to April 2020. They found that in all regions where the ultraviolet rays reach up to 95 percent, the mortality rate is relatively low. And in areas where ultraviolet rays are less visible, the death toll in Corona is higher. They conducted similar studies in the United Kingdom as well as in Italy and found similar results.

Researchers claim that ultraviolet rays, not vitamin D, are behind the whole phenomenon. Researchers have found that nitric oxide is released from the skin when exposed to high levels of sunlight. Probably a factor as to why they're doing so poorly. They also said that heart health is better when exposed to sunlight. Since corona heart disease is more likely to be a corona attack, it can be a blessing in disguise.

But the World Health Organization has long been working to raise awareness of the side effects of the sun's ultraviolet rays. It is true that small amounts of ultraviolet rays help the human body make vitamin D. But if the amount is too high, it can cause damage to human skin, eyes and immune system.
