New Study Provides Robust Evidence That COVID-19 Is Seasonal Infection; Increased Spread Seen in Colder, Less Humid Climates; Emphasis on Improved “Air Hygiene” Highly Recommended

A new study led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), an institution supported by the “la Caixa” Foundation, provides robust evidence that COVID-19 is a seasonal infection linked to low temperatures and humidity, much like seasonal influenza. The results, published online on October 21, 2021 in Nature Computational Science, also support the considerable contribution of airborne SARS-CoV-2 transmission and the need to shift to measures that promote “air hygiene.” The open-access article is titled “Climatic Signatures in the Different COVID-19 Pandemic Waves Across Both Hemispheres.”
