This afternoon.

Buswells Hotel, Dublin 2.

Zero covid enthusiastic People Before Profit TDs, including  Bríd Smith (top), at a press conference on her party’s Ventilation Bill which will be debated in the Dáil at second stage this week.

The bill seeks to guarantee a certain standard of ventilation in workplaces ‘to help stop the spread of coronavirus’ and ensure every employee the right to request an inspection of their workplace by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) to verify sufficient levels of fresh air.

    As ever, the far left is jumping on a new bandwagon to try and some get new followers. They know damn well that their proposals are impossible! They have previously jumped on the climate change bandwagon, but the wheels are slowly starting to fall off that so it’s onto something new to stay relevant and in the media spotlight.
    There proposals would force how many more businesses to close. But then again, I suppose, in the way that’s what the far left wants. To utterly break society and reshape it along the lines they desire.

      Agreed- when was the last time the far left gathered anywhere near the crowds on O’Connell Street on Saturday?

    The author of the thread makes the case that a major factor causing winter surges in Europe is that air humidity drops naturally. On top of that, when central heating systems get turned on in indoor settings, it causes the air to become even drier. This can cause the mucous membranes in the respiratory tract to become dehydrated for extended periods. A well-functioning mucosal immune system is a vital first-line of defence that the body has against respiratory pathogens.

    According to the author, a simple and effective solution would be to hang a wet towel in the room which “can provide massive, immediate relief to your mucosal microbiome at almost no cost”.

    Ventilation and clean air are ways to bring down hospital numbers overall. With better ventilation and air flow, recovery time spent in hospital is reduced.

    Zero covid was a noble idea at the time but as we’ve seen in New Zealand, China, Australia and even North Korea, the restrictions needed are far too complex. In addition, it is possible to eradicate a disease but unfortunately the vaccines are not there yet.

        Yeah I agree.

        Would I be right in assuming that keeping your space relatively humid and ventilated should keep things safe?
