How come when you go to a hospital...they like to keep the rooms frigid to keep germs from spreading....however...as soon as it starts getting cold outside...everyone starts getting sick from germs that are being spread around...this is a mystery to me?
I read that it's because people spend a lot more time inside, close to others.
Plus, your hands get soo dry from washing them when it's cold. So, why bother?
I have spent many days in hospital, many. Most of the time I was warm, but it is always freezing in the OR. But they do cover one up pretty well. It is no good place for rest and is filled with germs and I for one do not understand why they don't utilize copper, it will not, can not sustain bacteria. They need to use it for all door knobs and such.
Many viruses are much more durable than bacteria - they don't all suffer from the temperature zoning of 40 - 140 degrees (if memory serves me correctly - this sieve of a brain pan doesn't always work).
Germs can be easily spread from one person to another. I find hospitals in Canada are hot air filters do not always exchange air at room temp either.
Used to be (30 years ago) that certain areas of the hospital were kept cool because of the machines. Likewise, some areas might have seemed warm because of the machines. Blame it on the machines either way
Obviously our understanding of illnesses causes and spreading is far from perfect. There is much more to it then just germs and viruses
