PJ MASKS Bubbles Set Playtime Fun At The Park With Gekko, Owlette and Catboy! [Mouth-blown bubbles at 4:57]

Yesterday evening, Friday April 4, 2020 in downtown Arlington Heights, a car full of teenage girls or college-age were out apparently joyriding. As they traveled northbound on Dunton Avenue near Northwest Highway, a teen or college-age girl in the front passenger seat in a car full of girls was using a mouth-blown bubble blower, blowing bubbles out the window and yelling, “Happy Bubbles Day!”

A stream of bubbles exited the open car window near pedestrians at a questionable safe distance. Normally a fun activity, bubble blowing during a deadly Coronavirus pandemic is a dangerous, risky behavior that might transmit the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Coronavirus COVID-19 beyond the 6-foot safe distance recommended for Social Distancing.

While CARDINAL NEWS couldn’t find any research on the transmission of bacteria or viruses from bubble blowers, there is a study published in 1977 that took a look at bubbles from sea surf that carry viruses to the sea surface and propel the viruses in tiny jets of seawater into the air. Ejected jets become tiny drops of aerosol. The researchers found 200 times more virus per milliliter in aerosol compared to the seawater surf.

Now you might be thinking those bubble solutions will kill the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend handwashing for 20 seconds in order to kill viruses. It would only take viruses hitching a ride on bubbles blown from a COVID-19-infected asymptomatic teen girl about three seconds or less to burst into an aerosol and land on a pedestrian — or worse be inhaled by a pedestrian — let’s estimate 15 feet away.

Also consider this: bubble solutions are manufactured to be non-toxic to children, so the bubble solution’s destructive effect on viruses is also probably questionable.

Three questions:

Did you recognize the lack of adherence to the stay-at-home order and lack of social distancing with the car full of teens?

Where are the parents?

Is there no limit to human stupidity?
