So, in order to prevent hypothermia, it is best to turn on the air conditioner in doses. In addition, it is not recommended that the air blow directly on a person.

“If the body is weakened, three to five minutes is enough to get sick. From the air conditioner, you can easily get laryngitis, pharyngitis and even pneumonia, ” Sharapova said.
