Meteorological Organization: Although the weather is getting warmer, epidemic prevention will not relax
Mar 24, 2021
The World Meteorological Organization recently warned against letting up its guard against novel coronavirus just as spring approaches and warmer weather approaches in the northern hemisphere. It noted that there was a perception that rising temperatures would help curb the spread of the virus, but in fact there had been a sharp rise in the number of cases globally in the spring of 2020, when the outbreak began, and “there is no evidence that this will not happen again this year”.
Respiratory viral infections, such as the common cold and flu, tend to be seasonal, with peaks in the fall and winter, but scientists “do not yet fully understand” the mechanisms that cause these seasonal cycles, the report said. Climate “may play a combined role in the direct impact on virus survival, the impact on human resistance to infection, and the indirect impact of weather and season through changes in human behaviour patterns”.
