BBC: Will warm weather affect COVID-19 removal?



Many infectious diseases fade with the seasons. Influenza usually reaches the coldest winter months, as do norovirus vomiting defects, others, such as typhus, tend to peak during the summer, reports BBC.

Perhaps surprisingly, many people are now wondering if we can expect seasonality similar to Covid-19. Since first appearing in China around mid-December, the virus has spread rapidly, with the number of cases now increasing sharply in Europe and the United States.



The virus that causes Covid-19, which is officially named SARS-CoV-2, is too young to have clear data on how things will change with the seasons. The closely related Sars virus that spread in 2003 was quickly contained, meaning there is little information on how it was affected by the seasons.

But there is some data from other coronaviruses that infect humans if Covid-19 can eventually become seasonal.

A study conducted 10 years ago by Kate Templeton, of the Center for Infectious Diseases at the University of Edinburgh, UK, found that three coronaviruses all received from patients with respiratory tract infections in hospitals and medical surgeries in Edinburgh, showed “marked winter seasonality”.

These viruses appeared to cause infections mainly between December and April, a pattern similar to that seen with influenza. A fourth coronavirus, which was mainly found in patients with a diminished immune system, was much more sporadic.

Tips & Warnings The Covid-19 can also vary with the seasons. The spread of outbreaks of new disease worldwide seems to suggest that there is a preference for cold, dry conditions.
