• Possible Good News? Summer to The Rescue Against Coronavirus?

    Surge Summary: Recent research suggests regular summer temperatures and humidity could go a long way in wiping out coronavirus – and that, possibly, we will not see a resurgence of it in the fall as many fear.

    There was potentially great news in [Thursday’s] coronavirus briefing.  But the media are largely ignoring it because I think they want us to remain huddled in our homes, unable to do anything but listen to our “masters” tell us how to live.

    The good news is that scientists at the Department of Homeland Security have been conducting research on the effects of sunlight and humidity on the coronavirus.  What they discovered is that more sunlight, producing higher temperatures and more humidity, otherwise known as summer, is very deadly to the virus.

    Specifically, in summer-like temperatures and humidity, the virus only survives two minutes on surfaces and 90 seconds in the air.  We shouldn’t leap to conclusions, but this seems to be optimistic news about the potential for the summer months to seriously suppress this virus.

    Another thing that researchers are watching is what could happen in the fall.  Will Covid-19 make a resurgence in the fall, just like the regular flu?

    Well, here’s some more encouraging news:  Countries in the southern hemisphere, like Australia, are going into fall right now, and there appears to be no surge in the disease.  It’s still early, but over the next four to eight weeks, scientists will be monitoring those nations for clues as to what we can expect come October.
