Can Coronavirus Survive Heat?

You may have wondered if the new coronavirus would go away as the summer weather warms and gets more humid. But scientists recently looked at the few small studies on the subject and found there isn’t enough evidence to know if this is true.To start with, the real-world conditions in which the virus infects people can be hard to reproduce in a lab. Different humidity levels, in particular, can be tough to re-create.

 How Dangerous It Is?
It is hard to accurately assess the lethality of a new virus. It appears to be less often fatal than the coronaviruses that caused SARS or MERS, but significantly more so than the seasonal flu. The fatality rate was over 2 percent, in one study. But government scientists have estimated that the real figure could be below 1 percent, roughly the rate occurring in a severe flu season.About 5 percent of the patients who were hospitalized in China had critical illnesses.Children seem less likely to be infected with the new coronavirus, while middle-aged and older adults are disproportionately infected.
