Saw something on CO2 concentration being a good marker for covid risk. Makes sense when you think about it. In an enclosed space, anything above the background 0.04% is the result of what's been breathed out (minus ventilation) and is directly proportional to whatever else out of you lungs has been aerosolized.  (It is also dependent on the incidence of covid in your local area and ignoring things like filtration systems or the droplets which still require social distancing to avoid). This is on average of course so will be more accurate over time and with larger populations, but covid is so un-infectious (fectious?) that monitoring the CO2 whenever you are in an enclosed space would be a good indication of the risk you are exposed to. You can buy meters for as little as £20 but no idea how reliable they are. I class myself as not at all worried by covid, but I'd still be quite interested to give it a go. Apart from the forking out of 20 quid of course.

You can also tell from condensation running down the inside of the windows and a stale smell when you walk in..

Forgot my punchline. So now we know CO2 causes covid and global warming. If it turns out to be responsible for brexit I'm going to start getting suspicious.

Wait until you hear that Donald Trump breathes it out!

Hopefully the sensors are more accurate than those five quid oxygen level sensors mugs are buying as early warming covid detectors. xD

Maybe there will be a CO2 tax for establishments where they get auto-fined for readings over green and closed down when it hits red, all done via those smart meters so no need for covid wombles to give up the dream of becomming a traffic warden. xD
