Hotel Sogo is taking a variety of steps to ensure the security and safety of its guests and employees once they resume normal operations.

The employment of ultraviolet (UV) lamps in disinfecting around its facilities will be at the top of its priority list, with the procedure from check-in to meal ordering reinforced to ensure that their facilities are as clean as possible.

UVC, with wavelengths ranging from 200 to 270 nanometres (nm), has been shown in studies to kill microorganisms, germs, bacteria, and viruses. UVC has been widely employed in recent years, and it is also used to disinfect hospitals since it kills germs and microbes.
