I Hear It Takes A Lot To Piss Off Susan Sarandon. Clearly, Blowing Up Mountains Does The Trick.

For anyone who’s never heard of mountaintop removal, basically we blow up mountains, right here in the U.S., to mine for coal. We don’t get much out of it, and the side effects are horrible. It’s like taking a drug that’s supposed to address one health problem, but it’s actually destroying the rest of your body — but with no hope for recovery. Take a minute to see Susan Sarandon break it down.

Researchers at the University of Houston have developed a filtration system that can instantly neutralize and kill 99.8% of the coronavirus after a single pass through.

"It's basically a high-performance COVID-19 killer," Dr. Garrett Peel of Medistar, who helped craft the design, said according to Fox News.

The filter looks to be an important tool in fighting a virus that can remain in the air for hours and, in turn, spread more readily than viruses like the common flu. Harvard Health says that aerosolized coronavirus can remain in the air for up to three hours.

People who are asymptomatic can easily spread it to multiple people when they talk, breathe, cough, or sneeze.
