Posted on 04/15/2020 9:53:43 AM PDT by PROCON
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

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? 🙄
Let’s spread rumors all the time...
Change your air conditioner filters
Stealth implementation of the Green New Deal.
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.
Studies show and Experts say...
Yep - it’s not enough for them that I keep my car radio on low to save electricity.....might stop using headlights at night and save even more....
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.
Start a Duct Cleaning company.
Think I'm wrong?
Oh HELL no.
Havent they seen the scary study that shows how far a sneeze can spread in a grocery store?
Now imagine youre in an apartment or densely populated city townhome - open your windows as passerby sneeze and cough?
I dont think so.
Recirculated air via the AC is safer.
But then this manufactured crisis isnt about being safe...
Lets 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.
