Default New study: High heat and humidity may reduce spread of coronavirus

Access Denied

Hopefully this may prove out. If you look at global infections, southern hemisphere seems less affected. Key word is reduce, not completely stop.

Hope - but there is a problem: Singapore and Malaysia, both tropical and humid, have significant CV issues. So does Australia - and its been summer there.

This is true, but all three of those countries have heavy interaction with China, trade, flights etc. Consider Mexico, outbreak is fairly mild there. The study I linked to was only done in China, checking infection rates compared to heat/humidity across the country.

Again, study says infection rates are slowed, not stopped by heat/humidity.
