Well the Clorox part is certainly accurate Ben. All public water systems have to pretreat raw water with sodium hypochlorite (bleach). Most also add potassium permangenate to the systems to keep the mains from corroding on the inside. Unfortunately, neither substance does much for human plumbing.Don't worry, fresh air and sunlight will kill it and if not the Clorox they pipe to the water fountains will.
True enough, but, there is always a but. It is the UVC wave length that takes out viruses; medical facilities, such as hospitals, use it for disinfecting stuff. Juries out on if it kills corvid19. Here is the but; it can be dangerous if used incorrectly on humanoids. I have a small one instead of spraying electrical devicesthe current belief seems to be sunlight shortens virus lifetime on surfaces.
There is a theory that the DHS put out (and why the DHS instead of the CDC or WHO but whatever) that a combination of sunlight, high humidity, and temperature MAY kill the virus however it's just a theory right now. It hasn't been peer reviewed or tested extensively yet.Reputable and kill I guess are debatable but the current belief seems to be sunlight shortens virus lifetime on surfaces.
Sure thing...Yes it is. It's simply not true. Cite a reputable source.
I'm not suggesting that you are any safer outside in the sun in the event that someone with the virus coughs in your face. Let's not be silly now....There is a theory that the DHS put out (and why the DHS instead of the CDC or WHO but whatever) that a combination of sunlight, high humidity, and temperature MAY kill the virus however it's just a theory right now.

Saying "sunlight kills the virus" is misleading. If you're out in a park and someone coughs on you, I don't care how sunny it is, you can catch the virus. People think "oh, it's sunny out, I'm totally safe" and no, you're not.
Let me know when that paper gets peer reviewed. Until then it's just someone's hypothesis.Sure thing...
Follow the Sun: Slower COVID-19 Morbidity and Mortality Growth at Higher Irradiances by Alex Bäcker :: SSRNThe effect of temperature and irradiance on COVID-19 will determine the course of the pandemic in warmer locations and whether rising temperatures will change ipapers.ssrn.com
Simply not true?
You are misusing the terminology. A scientific hypothesis doesn't just become a theory when it's peer-reviewed. Besides, the paper presents hard data that displays unmistakable trends...trends that are echoed in a good number of other papers...but sure, you'll see these studies pass peer-review in the very near future..count on it....Let me know when that paper gets peer reviewed. Until then it's just someone's hypothesis.
It's not simple, but it is nonetheless true...viruses are alive, as this article confirms.
