For every 1 degree Fahrenheit temperature increase, there appears to be a 7%
reduction in CoVid19 transmissibility. This from a University of Chicago and UC Santa Barbara study of nearly 167,000 coronavirus cases from 134 countries.
There appear to be no affects on viral spread of changes in humidity or levels of precipitation. Based on this data, the investigators predict that temperature changes between March and July of this year will result in a 43% drop in CoVid19 spread in the Northern hemisphere and a 71% rise in the Southern hemisphere.
This info challenges us here in North America to get our epidemic under control before temperatures begin to drop next fall.
