Yes, 254 nm is an excellent virus killer. However, unlike 222 nm, long term 
exposure to 254 nm can cause damage to the eyes and skin. As Jonathan Berry 
points out 222 nm won't even penetrate the water film on your eyes.

I still like my idea of a baseball cap with a small xenon chloride excimer  
bulb attached to the underside of the bill. Sounds silly, sort of "Tom Swift 
and his Amazing Virus Killing Hat", but it might be more effective than masks. 
As long as the visible wavelengths can be filtered out to keep the light from 
being annoying, it could kill the viruses before being inhaled and also from 
penetrating through the eyes.  I'd much rather wear such a contraption than a

The harm from the virus is significant and lasting for many even if it does not 
kill.Also Corona viruses, well there has never been a successful vaccine for a 
corona virus and immunity seems not to be lasting.
Indeed about a 3rd of those who have had it seem not to have notable levels of

only way it's not just going to keep on hitting humanity again and again with 
what seem to be at the most optimistic to be a roughly 1% fatality rate.
I have found two US manufacturers of 222nm bulbs, not sure though that either 
have enough output.
Good to know it's krypton chloride, wasn't aware.

This is a really good idea. Fortunately, the U.S. can supply its own krypton. 
222 nm lamps are krypton chloride excimer bulbs. Maybe we can wise up and make 
the lamps in the United States. I doubt that any are made here now.  I know 
this sounds ridiculous at the moment, but what if a baseball cap could be made 
with a small excimer lamp on the under side of the bill. This certainly isn't 
impossible what with all the really compact high voltage supplies that are made 
now. I doubt if making large numbers of excimer bulbs would have much of an 
effect on the price of krypton as rather large amounts are used in double pane 
windows at near atmospheric pressure. The krypton chloride bulbs, conversely, 
use small amounts a low pressure.

OTOH, all of this prevention simply delays people being exposed to the virus 
and thus delaying the herd immunity. The original premise of this absurd lock 
down was to "flatten the curve" and prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed. 
This exercise in totalitarian despotism was based on faulty computer models 
like most of our predictions of doom lately. The overall death rate in the U.S. 
is down somewhat from previous years, meaning that the people who supposedly 
succumbed to the Wuhan virus would probably have died of something else in the 
same time period. Given the practice of reporting deaths of the elderly as from 
covid19 whether or not that was the known cause no doubt inflates the numbers 

Influenza deaths will probably exceed the deaths caused by the corona virus 
this year. This is just a guess on my part, probably more accurate that the 
latest computer models. But we all just love to panic don't we?

 You are sort of missing the point though!

The point is that 222nm UVC light kills the virus (however ironic that might be 
with HV corona emitting UV) and this 222nm UV is safe, not harmful!

It doesn't even get through to live skin cells or even through the water film 
on your eye.

But it destroys the virus in the air and on surfaces.

 Damp conditions, dew buildup, pollution and
