It’s important to know whether transmission of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 will change seasonally, as it does with other respiratory infections like influenza, for planning public health responses to COVID-19. Scientists studied the transmission dynamics of various human coronaviruses as well as the effect of weather on COVID-19 in an attempt to answer the topic of coronavirus seasonality. Although definitive results cannot yet be drawn, preliminary research suggests that SARS-CoV-2 transmission is more likely to occur during the winter months. Is there a season for coronavirus? Infectious diseases that create outbreaks at specific times of the year are sometimes referred to as “seasonal infections.” [1] Temperature and humidity, as well as human behaviour during the summer and winter months, can interact with varying degrees of population immunity to affect how common a virus infection is in the community at different seasons of the year. Some respiratory viruses, such as influenza,…
