Cobalt-60 applications and the fight against COVID-19

For the health care sector, nuclear power’s impact is two-fold – it can be counted on to keep the lights on in operating rooms and powering lifesaving equipment, while also being a reliable source of Cobalt-60, a medical isotope used for sterilization of medical equipment in hospitals around the world. Other types of medical grade isotopes are also an important element in cancer treatment.

A panel of experts and medical professionals discuss emerging trends using Cobalt-60 and its role in the fight against COVID-19.
