Could the summer bring an end to COVID-19?

Hello. If you breathe air with a temperature of 36.6 degrees, it becomes uncomfortable. I understand that the lungs are a radiator for cooling the body. The SOVID 19 virus likes our radiator. It reproduces there as long as there is the necessary temperature. What I don't know. 100 percent of it depends on the temperature of the inhaled air. If we consider that the outbreak in Italy and China occurred at a street temperature of 8-10 degrees, then the inhaled air should be at least 22. This explains the fact that the virus does not get mass distribution in countries where the heat is now. In Africa and India, there is no mass infection. The reason for the appearance of infected people there may be air conditioners.

Here in Western Washington state and the other Pacific coast states we have one of the highest infection rates in the country. Part of what this article states doesn't apply here. That is, our humid weather is in the colder 6 months of the year, while having very low humidity in the summer, the opposite to most of the country. I wonder how this works in our situation.

I hope LiveScience is not spreading around false hope. IF it is likely to slow or stop with warmer summer weather, then why is it spreading in the Southern Hemisphere? Look at the maps and you will see it is in almost every country, even across those on the South side of the Equator.
It is Summer there.

Like some other respiratory viruses such as the flu, is there a chance that the new coronavirus will spread less as temperatures increase?

It is still fairly warm (25-30C) in Australia and also fairly humid and the virus is spreading just as fast as anywhere else at the moment. While it might affect the rate a little it is unlikely to affect it all that significantly. Thailand and Singapore Malaysis and Indonesia are generally a lot hotter and more humid than most palces in US, Australia Europe, Canada and they have significant numbers of cases, particularly Indonesia and Malaysia where social isolation was started late - lower than most because of early implementation of social isolation rather than the weather conditions.

You are confusing relative humidity and absolute humidity. A better indication of the humidity is the dew point. In the winter you have a low dew point and the temperatures can reach much lower, indicating a much lower absolute humidity. In the summer the dew point is higher, and even if your relative humidity is low there is still significantly more moisture in the air.

You know during the day the relative humidity changes even though the absolute humidity usually does not. This is because relative humidity is relative to the dew point so it decreases as it warms up even if the amount of water vapor is relatively constant.

Your humid weather is in the summer, same as everyone else.

When we lived in Texas as a kid I got experience humidity like never before and never again. Constant sweating was the norm until we got air conditioning, and when we did the unit had a constant stream of moisture from the air. Once we moved back to the NW i never experienced humidity like that ever again, even when the temperature was about the same in both places. Also, dry skin became a problem that I'd never had in Texas. In the winter here we get 80+ humidity, while in the summer we can get down to the teens. Come to the Seattle area some summer and I think you'll understand. Then in winter you'll see windows steamed up a lot unless you have forced air heating. Otherwise, you'll see mold around those same windows.

The reason for the mass spread of the virus in the United States is air conditioning. Guys turn off the air conditioning, if you don't want to get sick, you have a fever now, it's healing. Do not overcool and do not sweat, I understand that this is hard, but it is a guarantee of health at this time of year. If someone knows doctors, bring this information, show them my videos. This is very important. Let the experts Express their opinion. I'm from Ukraine. I try my best to spread this information to save people. But my possibilities are limited here at home I managed to draw the attention of the regional infectionist and well-known virologist. I also managed to get through to the Institute of Virology. But it's hard for me. Just show these videos to your medical friends.

В Австралии все еще довольно тепло (25-30C), а также довольно влажно, и вирус распространяется так же быстро, как и где-либо еще в данный момент. Хотя это может немного повлиять на скорость, вряд ли это повлияет на все это значительно. Таиланд и Сингапур В Малайзии и Индонезии, как правило, намного жарче и влажнее, чем в большинстве мест в США, Австралии, Европе, Канаде, и у них есть значительное количество случаев, особенно в Индонезии и Малайзии, где социальная изоляция началась поздно - ниже, чем у большинства из-за раннего внедрения. социальной изоляции, а не погодных условий.

2318 инфицированных в Австралии и 69000 это одно и тоже? Это те же цифры?

Я надеюсь, что LiveScience не распространяется на ложную надежду. Если он может замедлиться или прекратиться с более теплой летней погодой, то почему он распространяется в Южном полушарии? Посмотрите на карты, и вы увидите, что они есть почти в каждой стране, даже в южной части экватора.
Там лето

В каждой стране есть один, но мы говорим об эпидемии. Просто сравните количество случаев в разных странах, и вы все поймете. Ведь это важно, нельзя сказать, что в Африке и в США есть коронавирус. Вам нужно говорить цифрами, тогда вы поймете. В США существует пандемия, в Африке - редкие случаи.

I've lived out west and down south. I understand your perception, but you failed to read and properly consider what I said. YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HUMIDITY. And I'm annoyed that I wasted my time on you because you weren't going to read and carefully consider what I had to say. Look it up yourself and you'll see there is far more to humidity than sweating in the summer.

Я живу в Южной Каролине, и я все еще использую обогреватель. Если вы не живете во Флориде, вы не используете кондиционер. Вы просто совершенно не правы. И я сделал с этим форумом.

Как показывает карта, большинство случаев заражения происходит в Соединенных Штатах, где температура воздуха низкая. 8-10 градусов. Причиной, по которой заболевание возникает в государствах с высокой температурой воздуха, является кондиционер. Давайте поговорим о массовой заболеваемости. Например, количество случаев в Южной Каролине. И сравните это с числом в Нью-Йорке. И еще вопрос, почему в Мексике нет массовых манифестаций?
