COVID-19 virus spreads in hot and humid environment

From the evidence available so far, the COVID-19 virus spreads to all areas, including hot and humid climates. Regardless of the weather, if you live, or go to a COVID-19 reporting area, follow the safety measures. The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to clean your hands frequently. By doing this you can remove the virus in your hands and prevent infection until it touches your eyes, mouth and nose.

Cold weather and ice cannot kill the new Coronavirus

There is no reason to believe that cold weather can kill new coronaviruses or other diseases. Regular human body temperature ranges from 36.5 to C to 37 ° C, regardless of open temperature or weather. The most effective way to protect yourself from new coronaviruses is by rubbing alcohol-based hands or washing with soap and water.
