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

That’s nice. They probably haven’t built an office building where windows actually open since 1957.
No danger from me using air conditioning today with the outside temp of 34 degrees and that we had a half inch of snow this morning here in northwestern Indiana.
I just had a new unit put in and it came with UV filtering system which kills virus, germs, and bacteria.
Yep, keep the windows closed to prevent mosquitoes getting in and giving us either Malaria or West Nile Virus.
That's raciss. The virus belongs to the world cause we are all holding hands under a big rainbow flag. And don't take HCQ for the malaria! Orange Man Bad.
My BS detector just went of the scale with this. Yeah, I really want to see this study for myself.
I seriously doubt the wet copper coil of an AC grows it like some bacteria or algae, and I suspect the coil has a filtering effect like they do for pollen and some allergens.
We are all gonna DIE
Studies show experts are full of it.
It’s on like Donkey Kong in Lansing, MI
Thousands are protesting.
While we are at it, how about the use of ozone generators and UV lights? These are both great anti-microbial measures. And they can be set up as part of an air cleaner system in the home or office.
Are they trying to eliminate air conditioning? Try telling that to people in AZ and Nevada!!
Our AC comes from geo-thermal.
Bugs don’t live 200 feet below ground.
Climate change BS from a “news” publication that sold for a dollar.
My new HVAC system in my house has the state of the art hospital grade filtration system with UV. I just had it installed in February so I’m ahead of the curve on this one...
But the local HVAC companies are sure pushing these in just about every new commercial on TV.
Tyrant's response: "We knows what's best for you; turn your A/C off or we'll turn your power off."
(Far-fetched, but these tyrants are dangerous when they're in power.)
UV light is great to kill viruses and bacteria.
Needs to be fairly strong. Tissue culture hoods all have this.
Always question any story that starts with the word Experts.
Not eating meat and being vegan cures it on another thread.
LOL, without a doubt. I have utter disdain for liberals and their inane, fascist credos.
