Air conditioning units that recirculate the same air in a room should be switched off or only used with open windows, experts have urged, amid mounting concern around the role of airborne transmission to spread Covid-19. Experts told the Telegraph that air conditioning units that only used recirculated air could exacerbate the spread of virus particles if someone was infected with Covid-19. Dr Shaun Fitzgerald, a fellow at the Royal Academy of Engineering, said there were two types of air conditioning units - ones that take air in from outside and expel it out again, or those that recirculate the same

More silliness from the 'settled science' crowd. Run the A/C but let that 100 degree air right back in. Otherwise - death awaits you.

I have a super duper brand new air conditioner and it runs 24x7 right now here in Minneapolis where it has been 90 degrees every day with like 100 percent humidity and no wind!!! Waiting to get my garage floor redone but the heat has pushed my date back because of the need for cooler temps for the materials the guy is using... Can't wait! Putting a screen door behind my garage door that I can pull down at night to keep out the state bird who likes to drink my blood!!!

If this applies to air conditioning it must also apply to your furnace. So when it’s three below next January throw open your windows or you’ll be circulating the flu. With any luck you’ll freeze to death but at least you won’t be a flu statistic.

They're trying for maximized misery to drive us into a corner and blame Trump. If Wolfe, my local lead progressive mosquito tries to force this on us, in the current heat and humidity, we'll be going after him. (I count Liberals as blood-suckers, too inept to be counted as anything but mosquitos - and like those bugs, potentially carry harmful side-effects such as diseases, with them)

My temp stays at 75-75. (Here in NOAL) Outside, temps in 90s with matching humidity. I think I’ll try their suggestion and then sit back and watch the MOLD grow. I’ll die of mold but at least I’ll be saved from Bat Soup Flu. Dumber than dirt, these idiots.

Run the ac with windows open or turn it off? Typical leftist claptrap. What happens in warm climates (think 3rd world countries) during heatwaves without ac? Deaths - lots of them. This every year at this time of year the media try to tug our heartstrings with woeful stories of people living on the sub-continent who die in record numbers due to the heat/global warming (never mentioning the obvious lack of ac). I recommend that all leftists and their puppets in America turn off their ac. When you die as a result from the heat, covid gets another death statistic, and the left is another step closer to stripping our rights from our Constitution. However if enough of the woke left succumb perhaps we will stand a chance at saving our Constitutional Republic.

#27 has a good point. We put a whole house filtration unit and UV lights in our AC system this spring to combat allergies. Recirculates air, kills mold, bacteria and viruses and filters out particles.

#7, your state bird is a democrat? It figures... On another WHO matter, have you people seen the lawyer tv ads against Roundup as a cause of non-hodgkins lymphoma? Roundup is a weed killer, using heavily in Iowa and other corn states. A federal judge allowed the testimony of WHO, which declared Roundup to cause non hodgkins lymphoma. Our CDC said no it doesn't. The judge went with the WHO. If Roundup really did cause the disease, Iowa would have wall to wall patients. So would lawn service employees.

But wait! Won't all those Wuhan Cooties just come in from outdoors where everyone knows that they are just lurking to GET YOU?!! Run and hide, put your head in the sand, THAT will protect you from the Wuhan Cooties floating in the air.......or maybe a mask, yeah, that's it a MASK, made of any piece of random cloth to keep out the virus. Never mind that the virus is more than 1000 time smaller the diameter of a human hair. Will a hair go through the holes in a piece of random cloth? Yeah, easily. But something 1,000 times smaller will be stopped by that cloth, protecting you from the Wuhan flu, we have it on good authority from top government scientists. And Dr. Fauci's Wizard Snake Oil Super Scientific Elixir is a guaranteed protection, just pour a little onto any random piece of cloth mask, and you will be magically protected.

If you have read this pdf https://covidinfos.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/MasksDon-twork-4.pdf showing documentation of Masks being like trying to strain out sand with a filter for screening out golf balls you will find scientific studies showing that a 1 to 2 micron diameter virus particle will even pass thru an N95 mask that can only remove particles larger than 5 microns. It seems that A/C filters on airplanes take larger liquid particles with virus and atomize (Hepa) them into smaller particles capable of going thru all masks. Your home or store recirculating A/C can have the same effect if and infected person is present.

I have been saying the reason it spreads thru nursing homes is because most of them only have one or two air handlers. Probably the same for old buildings in NY that share heat sources. Somebody has the virus and coughs near the intake, I think it spreads thru the vents. Not only hot but humid here.

New York's polls closed nearly three weeks ago. But many candidates still don't know whether they've won -- because New York City is still counting ballots that arrived in the mail. These votes would be an afterthought in most years. In fact, in New York, which is typically far more reliant on in-person voting, state law requires a weeklong delay before counting absentee ballots. But this year, amid widespread worries of COVID-19 spreading at polling places, the number of mail-in ballots is surging far faster than states' ability to count them. Elections experts are increasingly convinced that this surge, and the

Ashburn, Va.—Washington’s NFL team will get rid of the name ‘Redskins’ on Monday, according to multiple reports. It’s unclear when a new name will be revealed for one of the league’s oldest franchises. USA Today, ESPN, The Washington Post, Washington Times and Sports Business Journal reported Sunday night that owner Dan Snyder is set to “retire” the name. Yahoo, on Saturday, reported a name change was imminent. The team launched a ‘thorough review’ of the name July 3 that the NFL supported. That came in the aftermath of prominent sponsors FedEx, Nike, PepsiCo and Bank of America asking the team to change the name.

As for baseball, let’s be honest. It’s boring to watch and it’s even boring to play. Ordinary people who aren’t being paid to play baseball cannot endure it except by playing it co-ed with beer, which makes practically anything endurable including watching paint dry. About 90% of baseball consists of the players standing around while touching their privates whenever the TV camera is pointed at them or sitting around the dugout pretending to watch the other team while touching their privates. They often spit. Why do people pay to see millionaires lolling about in a park and hiding in a little concrete bomb shelter while spitting and touching their privates?

During the 1930s and 1940s, there were many genuine communists, as well as fellow travelers, working in Hollywood. Once the Cold War began, Hollywood turned against those people and instituted its blacklist, which made it impossible for anyone with communist sympathies to work openly in Hollywood. Of late, the further left you lean in Hollywood, the more you are to be applauded. That’s why it’s incredibly ironic to realize that Hollywood is once again blacklisting people – only this time, blacklisting means that the only people listed for employment have to be black.

The Left’s “Boycott Goya” campaign to bully and silence Goya Food CEO Robert Unanue for praising President Trump has backfired in epic fashion after scores of Trump supporters launched their own counter-boycott called “Goya Buy-cott.” The “Buy-cott” campaign inspired countless Trump supporters to go to their local stores and buy up Goya olives, seasonings, beans, and frozen foods like it’s Christmas. In fact, Goya couldn’t have asked for better marketing if it had paid millions of dollars in prime-time TV and newspaper ads. President Trump kicked things off by tweeting, “I love Goya Foods!” (Tweet)

The U.S. Army sent an email to its military and civilian members after the Fourth of July that included a graphic that claimed innocuous words and phrases like “colorblind,” “all lives matter” and the Trump Campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” are evidence of “white supremacy.” The graphic also listed “Celebration of Columbus Day,” the “Denial of White Privilege,” “Talking about ‘American Exceptionalism,’” and saying “There’s Only One Human Race” as behaviors that are indicative of white supremacy. After Army personnel brought the offensive email to the attention of a U.S. Congressman, the Army said the material was “unapproved” and sent out “in error.”

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was lampooned for suggesting that the recent 130% spike in deadly NYC shootings was due to coronavirus-induced unemployment — and not on her and other Black Lives Matter operatives’ reckless campaign to “Defund the Police.” AOC (aka – “Bronx Bolshevik“) made the disingenuous comments to deflect blame for the mass slaughters of black people occurring in Democrat-run cities around the country. In a virtual town hall meeting on Zoom, AOC desperately tried to shift the blame for the alarming surge in shootings and murders in Democrat-run cities where police have been pulled back.
