In the “things to be thankful for” news category for Hawaii, Newsweek magazine reports that opening windows in buildings, including our homes, may prevent the spread of the viruses.
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).
This is supported by evidence suggesting viruses, including coronaviruses, struggle to survive in typical indoor temperatures and at a relative humidity of above 40 percent.
All the more reason to keep natural airflow in our homes.
