Answer: No more than you do or any ventilation system does for airborne viruses and bacteria. Many people are susceptible to dryness sometimes caused when an air conditioning system is badly designed or maintained and the relative humidity is reduced too much. It's a fact that basically coughs and sneezes spread diseases, but some people will blame anything for their ills rather than understand the facts.
