I’m not a scientist, but if this virus is anything like most viruses, even the flu, then heat and humidity of where you live will have minimal impact reducing the chances the catching it.
And you got my brain thinking. I did a search and it looks like some science folks in the US studied this very question.
Read this. It’s really interesting: Study: Flu likes weather cold and dry or humid and rainy | CIDRAP
To provide an independent check on the findings, the team also used epidemiologic data from nine countries participating in the World Health Organization’s global flu surveillance program, FluNet. The countries—Spain, Tunisia, Senegal, Philippines, Vietnam, Colombia, Paraguay, South Africa, and Argentina—each provided several years’ worth of data. .
The scientists gathered data on temperature, relative humidity, and precipitation for each of the sites. They used the temperature, relative humidity, and atmospheric pressure to calculate the average monthly specific (absolute) humidity, meaning the ratio of water vapor to air.
By comparing the flu patterns and climate data, the researchers found that temperature and specific humidity were the best individual predictors of peak flu activity, the NIH release said. They determined that in temperate regions, flu was more common 1 month after periods of the lowest specific humidity, which coincided with the coldest months.
“In contrast, sites that maintained high levels of specific humidity and temperature were generally characterized by influenza epidemics during the most humid and rainy months of the year,” the NIH said.
So basically, you’re safe if you don’t live where it’s cold and dry or humid and rainy. Whaaaa!?!?
