Title: Anti - Covid Hat Invented - I Fear No More Covid
Post by: championoftruth on 19/01/2021 17:17:40
Hi Fellow Citizens

  With all the Covid raging I have invented an Anti - Covid Hat that fires a beam of negatively charged ions
 using carbon brushes.

This is based on Science after extensive research by me.

 I can post a picture of the prototype if you want.

Tests indicate a steady breeze of negative ions being fired and making any particles sticky and damaging pathogens.

It is based on a 7 dollar ion module with 10 heads or 5 pairs of 2 heads.

It can be battery powered from a usb power bank if you want to be walk about or a a usb plug.

Here is the module.

The clinical decision is whether I'd rather get COVID or have an electric squid set fire to my moustache. Difficult choice.

Presumably the system uses the scalp as the reference electrode, so after a few minutes spraying negative ions at the invading virus, you end up with positively charged hair which blows the hat off.

Back to the drawing board.

i checked and it fires electrons. a -ve breeze is emitted. here is a youtube demonstration

Depends on the polarity... repel or attract.

Not at all. Any charged body will attract any uncharged insulator.

charged bodies only interact with charged bodies.

UNLESS it induces a charge in the body.

Your example of the ioniser clearing the cigarette-smoke from the glass (https://youtu.be/74x_gF3w27Y?t=74),
 is via attracting smoke particles, not a "breeze" blowing them away.

Ionisers attract particles suspended in the air: they become filthy as a result.

Ionizers can also generate ozone, which is particularly bad for the lungs.

In the first such epidemiological study, researchers found that the infection rate fell to zero during the year long trial. “We were absolutely astounded to find such clear cut results,” engineer Clive Begg at the University of Leeds, UK, told New Scientist.

Stephen Dean, a consultant at the St James’s Hospital in Leeds where the trial took place says: “The results have been fantastic – so much so that we have asked the university to leave the ionisers with us.”

Brian Duerden, director of the UK’s Public Health Laboratory Service, is encouraged by the results. “It is not the whole answer as many infections are spread by touch, but it is a potential addition to the weaponry against hospital infections,” he told New Scientist.

Research by electronics company Sharp has shown that positive and negative ions produced by their air conditioning systems can inactivate viruses including influenza. But the new study is the first to link such an effect to reduced infections in hospitals.

You can only wander how many covid patients could have been saved if they had implemented nationwide as so many of covid and related deaths occurred in hospital acquired infection transmission.

Dr Beg was prevented from putting them in hospitals Nationwide by powerful and sinister forces who profit from consumables and profit from such. We all know who they are.

"The ionisers produce negative air ions that collide with suspended particles and give them a charge. The scientists believe charged particles aggregate together"

How very interesting. When I was a lad, particles with the same charge tended to repel each other. Indeed I know of a genius who is going to use that phenomenon to build a space elevator. But 'appen it's different in Yorkshire, tha' knows.

There is some scientific sense buried in

if the ionisers are cleaning the air in this way, we would expect to find more precipitation of acinetobacter on surfaces and this is exactly what we found.

Suppose you inject a lot of negatively charged particles into the air at high level. Generating negative ions means that you have to produce an equal positive charge somewhere, and this has to leak away to the ground before it produces lightning flashes from the generator. So we have a potential gradient between the upper air and any earthed surface. Dielectric particles (bacteria and dry dust) will acquire a negative charge and thus precipitate on the positive surface, as found.

The principle of electrostatic precipitation has been used to remove smoke from power station chimneys for decades, and the resulting gunge (called "fly ash") is used to make concrete building blocks.     

Ionisers also generate ozone which is a powerful antibacterial agent.

A breakthrough in the fight against infections acquired in hospital could be achieved thanks to pioneering new research.

The project is investigating the use of ionisers to eradicate airborne infections in hospitals – a technique that could deliver major health benefits and financial savings.

Starting in December, the 3-year initiative will be carried out by engineers at the University of Leeds with funding from the Swindon-based Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Infections originating in hospital are a serious and widespread problem, affecting around 10% of patients during their stay. There is increasing evidence that up to 20% of these infections are transmitted by an airborne route – at a cost of £100-200 million a year in England alone.

The project will build on a recent successful study at St James's University Hospital in Leeds. This found that using ionisers to negatively charge air particles in an intensive care unit prevented all infections caused by the Acinetobacter pathogen. Immune to nearly all currently available antibiotics, Acinetobacter infections are a growing problem in hospitals and can be fatal in some groups of patients.

In the new project, the same team will set out to understand the science behind this success and provide a firm basis for future use of the technique. They will focus on the biological and physical processes associated with negative air ionisation and airborne transmission of infection, and establish guidelines for the effective use of ionisers in hospital buildings.

Much of the research will be carried out in the University's state-of-the-art aerobiological test facility, which was part funded by EPSRC. The facility incorporates a 32m3 climatic chamber where temperature, humidity and ventilation rate can be varied and controlled. The chamber enables researchers to mimic various clinical environments and perform a wide range of experiments involving aerosols doped with micro-organisms.

The project team is being led by Dr Clive Beggs of the University of Leeds' Aerobiological Research Group. Dr Beggs says: "Negative air ionisation could have a dramatic impact on a problem that has been attracting increasing publicity and causing

Considering that these infections kill people and the huge cost to the NHS and the lossf lives it's a dirt cheap way of solving the problem of Covid infection not just in hospitals but in public and private place.
