COVID-19 spreads better in cold weather: second wave in Australia proves

In Australia, where it is winter, the second wave of the coronavirus has begun. More than sixty schools in the Australian state of Victoria have closed due to the rapid increase in the number of cases.

It is winter now in Australia, and the rise in the number of cases in the country shows a “worrying trend” that subsequent waves of COVID-19 may be stronger than previous ones, especially when conditions are favorable for infection, writes Bloomberg.

We are talking about cold conditions when people hide from the weather in closed spaces.

The whole world and the World Health Organization are on their nerves. We have always said that the world will watch very closely what is happening in New Zealand and Australia.

Note that today in Australia, a record was set for the daily increase in cases of 723 people.

Australia’s example can show how the pandemic will develop in the fall and winter in Europe and the United States. Therefore, epidemiologists are closely monitoring the situation.
