The effects of hot weather on the new Novel Corona virus epidemic will likely depend on the open environment and humidity within the premises.
This was revealed in a US medical study.
Yale University research examines the climatic trends of viruses causing respiratory diseases.
Common colds and flu cases are on the rise during the winter, while viruses such as SARS and the new nasal corona virus first appear in the cold season.
Research published in the journal Annual Review of Virology reveals that the relationship between the spread of the virus and the weather is being evaluated in various research reports and, 2 key factors that matter to it are changes in environmental parameters and human behavior.
Different temperatures and humidity affect the spread and stability of viruses, for example a new analysis indicates that cold dry air may play a role in influenza outbreaks in winter.
How Does Dry Air Affect Immunity and Virus Outbreak?
The study describes how cold and dry air could potentially impact the spread of the new corona virus.
He explained that when cold, dry air enters the courtyard and then heats up, the moisture content inside the house is reduced to 20%, thus reducing the humidity of viral particles in the air.
He added that cells outside the body’s respiratory tract do not function well in dry environments; they do not exclude viral particles, as they do in other situations.
For example, one study found that mice in 10% humid environment are less vulnerable to the influenza virus cleansing system than mice living with 50% humidity.
Similarly, dry air may affect the ability to repair lungs after influenza infection in mice.
Researchers say various research reports have proven that the rat virus’s immune response is not more effective as a result of dry weather.
However, they also point out that too much moisture in the open environment also contributes to the spread of the virus, for example, in the equatorial air, particles in the air can survive longer.
Researchers say that most homes and buildings in these areas have poor air circulation systems, while people live very close, which increases the risk of spreading the virus as a result of high humidity.
He emphasized that people can spread the virus to each other for any part of the year by touching the surface and contaminating the surface, and the best way to avoid this is by practicing handwashing and timed distance.
But he also said research reports on mice have found that humidity in the air is ideal for preventing 40 to 60 percent of the virus.
“That’s why we advise people to install homefighters in cold weather in buildings,” he said.
On the other hand, a study by a London College University study of different types of corona viruses revealed that coronary disease rates were highest in February and lowest in hot weather.
Researchers say that the number of new corona virus cases may decrease in the warmer climates, but this trend may change again in the winter.
He said that since it is a new virus, so if you do not know the effects of the weather on it, it is important to follow current medical advice.
