My mistake. I guess, the only reassuring thing for us is being in a hot weather zone. You get infected but don't die. I think critics are overdoing the `Not testing enough' thing. No one has tested more than SoKo and their death rate is still over 1%
Show me 1 scientific paper supporting your warm weather theory - didn't realize Brazil, Spain, Italy, and Iran were considered COLD.
1. It is a flu virus. Flu virus hits the worst during cold weather, and change of season (into cold or wet weather).
2. There was a paper written by some Tsinghua guys about the correlation of rate of spread and temperature & humidity, where they claimed that hot weather and high humidity were inhibitors. This looked like a decent paper but my beef with it was that it was written by CS types not public health persons. A quick search shows up some articles, e.g. https://www.businessinsider.in/science/news/high-temperatures-and-muggy-weather-might-make-the-new-coronavirus-less-contagious-a-group-of-experts-says/articleshow/74697538.cms
3. Iran is cold this time of the year. There are mountains right by Teheran where it snows. Same with Italy. Italian alps, remember?
4. Cases from Dubai, SIngapore I will attribute to being in close confinement in an airconditioned recirculating environment. "warm weather" only applies to the outside, not when you are in airconditioning. Also it is an inhibitor not a blocker of transmission. So please continue to exercise the utmost of caution.
My doctor stated that there was zero correlation that any types of food induced acidity, and this had been studied in depth. I can with equal certainty say that certain foods (aerated drinks for instance) will 100% give me acidity that very night. It is like clockwork for me. So while a statistic may apply to the population at large, each individual's response may show something entirely different.
So far there has been minimal transmission in the wild in India. Let's hope it stays that way, but be prepared for the worst.
