Comparing official meteorological data with the locations of all coronavirus infections suggests the virus spreads fastest at 48 degrees Fahrenheit and drops off at higher temperatures, according to Chinese researchers.
From the South China Morning Post, "Coronavirus ‘highly sensitive’ to high temperatures, but don’t bank on summer killing it off, studies say":
- Pathogen appears to spread fastest at 8.72 degrees Celsius, so countries in colder climes should ‘adopt the strictest control measures’, according to researchers from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangdong provinceThe way Africa has been relatively untouched would certainly suggest the virus is not as troublesome in warm climates.
One week ago, France 24 reported that health experts were "puzzled" by their low rates.
Florida has 16 confirmed cases but Gov Desantis "said Florida has not had community spread of the virus," according to Fox 35 Orlando.
(It must be noted testing in America has been extremely sparse.)
Many national governments and health authorities are banking on the coronavirus losing some of its potency as the weather warms up, as is generally the case with similar viruses that cause the common cold and influenza.It's good that they're suggesting governments exercise an abundance of caution but for those of us in the US where our authorities are focused almost exclusively on stock market preservation and battling anti-Chinese racism we've pretty much been left to bank on the hope this just goes away in the summer.
