A recent study suggests air conditioning systems could play a role in spreading the coronavirus.

Households across the US are cranking their air conditioners to handle the heat with summer just around the corner. But one alarming new study suggests that the coronavirus can be easily spread though our air conditioning systems. According to University of Maryland environmental health professor Donald Milton, air conditioners can blow around infected droplets that are hanging in the air, "With enough air movement, your nose can pull in large particles," Milton says. Think pollen, for example.

This seems like a no-brainer. I always expected that air ducts would move it around, but no one at my office listened to me. They have a closed air recylcing system.

Wow. I actually had an air filter but apparently the filter isn't strong enough. All this time I thought I was protected.

Interesting, I never had a HEPA filter before I guess they are important to have. Seems logical.

Yes, I would strongly consider it since most apartments have shared ventilation. This is the same reason I got one for my grandma in a assisted living facility.
