you are as IGNORANT as you are CORRUPT.
Fauci killed thousands during the AIDS crisis with AZT and by stalling the use of Bactrim. He's repeating history with toxic Remdesivir and #VentsKill, neither of which treat Covid. #CovidIsVascular. #IMDb

From our review of the literature, it is clear that enhancing the ventilation, whether through INCREASING the VENTILATION RATE or MODIFYING the AIRFLOW pattern is an effective way to REDUCE AIRBORNE VIRAL INFECTION risk.>
...enhancing ventilation across an entire building might not be feasible due to economic or HVAC system limitations...suggests PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION to SPACES where the OCCUPANTS are ENGAGED in HIGH EXPIRATORY ACTIVITIES such as singing, speaking loudly, or heavy exercising.>
If mechanical ventilation is not available or is insufficient, NATURAL VENTILATION through opening windows and doors should be utilized.
