HealthDay Reports: Coronavirus May Be Seasonal After All
The researchers used weather data from the previous few months, as well as typical weather patterns from last year, to predict community spread of COVID-19 within the next few weeks.
THURSDAY, June 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Here's a glimmer of hope about the new coronavirus: New research finds it appears to follow a seasonal pattern that is similar to the flu.
Scientists found that all cities/regions with large COVID-19 outbreaks have similar winter climates, with an average temperature of 41 to 52 degrees Fahrenheit, average humidity levels of 47% to 79%, and are located within a latitude band of 30 to 50 N.
This includes Wuhan, China; South Korea; Japan; Iran; Northern Italy; Seattle; and northern California.
