The Other Covid Solution
I wanna start this off by saying that I’m not a scientist, I’m a comedian at best. But here is a thought that I have regarding the Covid.
From the get-go, I think it’s been widely acknowledged that Covid does not transmit well outside.
I feel like we’ve all been pretty cool and lax about stuff that’s been purely outside and not overly crowded.
Anyway, I don’t see any reason why we can’t make the indoors like the outdoors. It’s a matter of ventilation. The outside is more ventilated than the inside. Meaning there is a ventilation tipping point where Covid can’t spread well. It seems to me that it would have been easier to find that tipping point and start to immediately expand and increase ventilation systems in buildings to meet that ventilation standard than it was to make and distribute a vaccine.
We can change our body to fight the disease, or change our environment to fight the disease.
It seems easier, and cheaper, to augment public buildings to a higher ventilation standard than to create and convince everyone to take a vaccine.
I honestly think that the reason they didn’t choose to use public money to solve this problem by retrofitting our public buildings to a higher ventilation standard is that, that solution would have made HVAC specialists rich instead of pharmaceutical executives. A solution that augmented our infrastructure on the taxpayers’ dime, would have enriched the poor, the middle class, and the upper-middle class, instead of the already very rich.
