Yes, Flori-DUH, "Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant". (Justice Louis Brandeis, 1913 & 1928)

While Governor RONALD DION DeSANTIS and his apparatchiks banned people from local beaches, there was no scientific evidence.  Now, the beach ban has been partly repealed.

Good move.

As Justice Louis Brandeis famously wrote, "Sunlight is the best disinfectant," as I pointed out several weeks ago to our County Commissioner from District 5, Isaac Henry Dean.  See Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928)(Brandeis, J., dissenting); see also, Louis Brandeis, "What Publicity Will Do," Harper's Weekly (December 20, 1913),

Now, government scientists have confirmed that's true for the coronavirus.

From Yahoo News:

Sunlight destroys virus quickly, new govt. tests find, but experts say pandemic could last through summer

Lab experiments show that the coronavirus does not survive long in high temperatures and high humidity
