Subject: Sunlight helps stop the spread

Saginaw Bay Area - Michigan
In another moment of "tell us something we don't know", new study reaffirms that sunlight can be good for you.

Details are in the PDF on that page.

Study concludes that 'rona exposed to sunlight effectively eliminated infectivity in 7-10 minutes. No sunlight, such as indoors, can allow it to remain active for ~6 hours.

Temp and humidity also play a part in this, but optimal combinations were not discerned.

Unrelated to the study, I've read others indicate that "if sunlight is so good, why are places like AZ & FL have so many cases in the hotter months". The simple answer is most likely everyone is indoors using AC during those hotter days, where the bug has a better chance of spreading.

The study did not discuss how much longer a mask enables the virus to remain active and infectious given that the mask would shield the virus from UV and enable it to remain active for 6+ hours, spreading each time the mask was fiddled with (ie constantly).
