Novel coronavirus pneumonia, China’s Center for Disease Control and prevention, Wu Zunyou, chief expert: respiratory infectious diseases generally decrease in summer, but the new crowns pneumonia has greatly affected our traditional understanding. Especially in places with high temperature, including our neighboring countries, India and Africa, there are also serious outbreaks in places with high temperature, which is one aspect.
On the other hand, low temperature is more suitable for the survival and spread of virus. Take Beijing as an example. In terms of the local outbreak point, the new market is also concentrated in a humid and low temperature area. Selling seafood or ice, the local temperature is still relatively low, so it is not completely against our understanding. It’s just on the basis of our original understanding that we have gained knowledge. The novel coronavirus pneumonia is not only prevalent in winter, but also popular in summer, where temperatures are high.
