COVID-19: Will Warmer Temperature and Humidity Reduce Infection Rate?
Today we’re going to talk about COVID-19, temperature, and humidity. Could COVID-19 get better in the summer?
Studies on COVID-19 and temperature:
Study: High temperature and high humidity could significantly reduce the transmission of COVID-19. For every increase in 1 degree Celsius and increase in 1% humidity, there’s a decrease by R (the infection rate) by .0383 and .0224.
Study: There are greater infections in the northern hemisphere versus the lower hemisphere. This may have to do with distance from the sun and how much vitamin D people are able to get.
Study: Showed an inverse relationship between humidity, temperature, and COVID-19 infections.
Certain viruses are seasonal and peak in the winter because they’re more stable in cold temperatures. During the winter months, people also tend to have higher levels of cortisol, which weakens the immune system.
During the winter months, you’re also going to get less vitamin D, which can weaken the immune system. There are even more benefits of sunlight that go beyond vitamin D and temperature, that you’re missing out on in the winter months.
If there are viruses that are peaking in the winter months, it’s important to keep your immune system strong during this time. You can also take vitamin D and do whatever you can to help counter the increase in cortisol. Sleep and long walks could help as well.
