[quote:(:-DeeZe:MV80MjcxMzM2Xzc3ODE2MDkwXzc3MkUwRUE2] [b]The role of absolute humidity on transmission rates of the COVID-19 outbreak[/b] "A novel coronavirus (COVID-19) was identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, in December 2019 and has caused over 40,000 cases worldwide to date. Previous studies have supported an epidemiological hypothesis that cold and dry (low absolute humidity) environments facilitate the survival and spread of droplet-mediated viral diseases, and warm and humid (high absolute humidity) environments see attenuated viral transmission (i.e., influenza). However, the role of absolute humidity in transmission of COVID-19 has not yet been established. Here, we examine province-level variability of the basic reproductive numbers of COVID-19 across China and find that changes in weather alone (i.e., increase of temperature and humidity as spring and summer months arrive in the North Hemisphere) will not necessarily lead to declines in COVID-19 case counts without the implementation of extensive public health interventions." http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~msantill/Mauricio_Santillana/Publications_files/Luo_et_al_2020_Absolute_Humidity_R0_COVID-19.pdf [/quote]
TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Renowned Chinese pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan (鍾南山) said Tuesday (Feb. 11) that the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) epidemic will reach its peak at the end of the month and will slowly die out by April.
Zhong said that the peak of the outbreak should come "in mid or late February" based on mathematical models of the outbreak's virulence and Chinese government measures.
He confessed that the coronavirus has proven to be more contagious than medical experts predicted, but there is already a gradual reduction in viral infection numbers in several parts of the country."
