UK: The Illusion Of Safety: UK Commuter Trains Will Leave Windows Open In Winter To Fight COVID-19

As Boris Johnson forces hundreds of bars to close as COVID-19 cases come roaring back, with hot spots in northern England leading the charge, the Telegraph reports that commuter train operators are instituting questionable new safety measures like keeping all train windows open during the winter cold to try and ‘COVID-19 proof’ their trains and make commuters more comfortable with the safety risk.

The news comes despite new research confirming that the virus can survive for weeks on banknotes, and that lower temperatures enhance SARS-CoV-2’s chances of survival.

The UK over the weekend finally topped 600,000 cases as a surge in new cases started to wane.
