Is Coronavirus Pandemic will be over at Summer?
As known as Covid-19, will disappear when summer arrives? How Coronavirus Pandemic will stop, information from experts.
One of the most talked-about topics that we have just entered in spring is that the COVID-19 outbreak caused by the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 will lose its effect in the summer. Is this really the case, will we overcome this epidemic in the summer?
What experts think about COVID-19 Pandemic?
Whether high temperatures will effectively kill the new coronavirus Sars-Cov-2 remains unclear. There is no research to prove this because it is a new virus.
however, we know that sars coronavirus (Sars-Cov), which caused a global epidemic in 2002-2003, was killed at temperatures above 56 degrees according to the world health organization.
Theoretically, the Covid-19 Virus (a part of the coronavirus family, including Sars and Mers) is temperature-sensitive. All viruses consist of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein shell called the capsid. Some viruses, such as Coronavirus, have an outer membrane outside the shell. this membrane is relatively sensitive to heat.
During the 2003 shock epidemic, the number of confirmed cases for each 1 centigrade degree in Hong Kong, where the virus killed about 300 people, decreased by 3.6. However, the shocking epidemic lasted 8 months.
What will happen in 2020 Summer, is Coronavirus pandemic will stop?
The differences between Sars and Covid-19 make it difficult to estimate the flexibility of the new virus. Unlike sars, which can only infect others by patients with fever, people with Covid-19 can spread the disease and make it much more difficult to control the outbreak without any symptoms.
however, a recent study showed that Covid-19 was far more contagious than Sars. The study, published by the medical research archive Biorxiv on February 15, was conducted by a team led by texas university researcher Jason Mclellan, who has been researching different types of coronavirus types such as Sars and Mers for years.
As the temperature rises, the coronavirus floats or adheres to the surfaces. both are where they can only survive for a short time. but once it enters the body, its ability to infect does not decrease with hot air.
