PETALING JAYA: Health experts have warned of the danger of Covid-19 being spread via air-conditioners, and have called on restaurants and workplaces to ensure there is sufficient air circulation in the premises.Universiti Malaya virologist Prof Dr Sazaly Abu Bakar said restaurants that allow dine-in must ensure proper directional airflow from air-conditioners.

“This means either it sucks the air up or you have the air flowing in one direction. Unless restaurants can do that, I won’t advise them to reopen, especially so for closed-door restaurants, ” he said.
