Will Warmer Weather Stop the Spread of COVID-19? Maybe Not.

With coronavirus now affecting almost every country, some are hoping that the virus will start to disappear as the weather warms up.

However, the World Health Organization’s emergency chief, Dr. Michael Ryan says the virus will “likely continue to spread in warmer weather and people shouldn’t assume that it will disappear in the summer like the flu.”

Ryan says after COVID-19 is around for a few years and the population has had it, the virus might calm down and behave more like the flu, but the immunity hasn’t been built up yet.

The other related viruses, SARS and MERS, were mostly contained by banning travel from hotspots like Asia and Canada.
