“It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads,” ABC News noted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying in a statement.
Samsung has also mentioned that despite this service there is no guarantee that the service can prevent the users from getting coronavirus. It further adds that there are limitations to the service as not all UV lights used at service centers are one and the same.
