Air Conditioning Appears To Spread CoronavirusóBut Opening Windows Could Stop It, Studies Suggest
Newsweak ^ | April 15, 2020 | KASHMIRA GANDER

Opening windows in buildings, including our homes, may prevent the spread of the coronavirus, scientists believe

Experts in health, the built environment and microbiology at the University of Oregon and the University of California, Davis, made the recommendations by reviewing existing studies on germs including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus which causes COVID-19 disease).

They also looked at data on other members of the large coronavirus family of bugs which trigger severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). They published their findings in the journal mSystems

This 'study' doesn't even mention that most 'climate scientists' believe air conditioning is killing the Erf and should be banned, so here's their new angle.

So why would you want to possibly expose yourself or loved ones to this virus when you only have to turn off your A/C and open the windows to be safe? Get it? 🙄

EXACTLY!!! I knew that BS had the climate change angle to it!

F*** that!!! I’m cranking my AC to the MAX, esp if I have to be stuck in the house.

I mean they are right, air conditioning is a closed system moving air from one area to another. So they are right that it could spread the virus.

But yet, they still run the NY Subways 24/7 with crowded trains with closed system air conditioners......

Why is no one advocating shutting down the subway system?

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that these so-called ‘experts’ are becoming more scientifically and logically dyslexic as they fumble their way through their book of excuses?

Also you sitting at home with AC on full blast isn’t going to spread the virus, unless you have the virus or someone else in your house has it. If no one has it, it can’t spread.

AC in public places and in confined areas like subways is how this thing spreads around.

Shut down mass transit

But that would make the greenie’s head explode.

Bullsh*t. This is just another lie to keep the cowards among us cowering and to fuel the little fascists across the land. Another little tidbit I read this morning: Healthy 38 year old man DIES after 'thinking' he was over the virus only to die from it because it recurred. Another little article: Bishop DIES after defying 'social distancing' guidelines and now, his ENTIRE FAMILY is infected.

Any questions by the citizenry is met with another 'horror' story. It's a daily barrage of covid19 lies designed to do just what it has been doing. Right here in my county there is an hourly 'update' on people DYING.

Sick.of.it.

'Studies' like this can be taken seriously enough by these political tyrants like the Michigan Governor, that they actually ban A/C under the pretense of saving lives, and enforced by law.

Think I'm wrong?

Oh HELL no.

Haven’t they seen the scary study that shows how far a sneeze can spread in a grocery store?

Now imagine you’re in an apartment or densely populated city townhome - open your windows as passerby sneeze and cough?

I don’t think so.

Recirculated air via the AC is safer.

But then this manufactured crisis isn’t about being safe...

Let’s just cut to the chase, expert (ie leftist) studies show non-experts (ie most people) spread COVID-19, therefore the non-experts should be quarantined and/or eliminated to stop the spread of the virus...

You are not wrong. They are totally out of control. Now they're saying you need fresh air, and at the same time have shut down parks because people might go there and breathe the fresh air. You just can't make this stuff up. But it won't stop until enough people grow a pair and start practicing civil disobedience to tyrants.

I'm done with this police state crap.

Hepa 13 filter plus a UV light (UVC) shining on the filter does a great job for killing off the virus.

But if you open the windows, the mosquitoes and other bugs come in.

Sure. When it’s 105 degrees in Tucson that will work.
