Horrid Lighting for Hospital Lobbies

Bring back fluorescent tubes with lots of UV

Hospitals have tried to make their lobbies more... um... hospitable as of the last dozen years or so, putting soft- white LED reading lamps here and there, which is ironically contributing to killing us all by eliminating an overlooked sterilizer--the UV from those god-awful fluorescent tubes.

Place the UV lights anywhere people likely to be contagious might congregate. Pub restrooms, hotel lobbies, etc.

       Many hospitals have discreetly-located UV luminaires for just that purpose. They become obvious when the main lighting is switched down at night (although some areas are constantly at full illumination)   

       While you're lying on a gurney, staring up at the ceiling, struggling to breathe and waiting for a ventilator to come available, have a look around.
