CLAIM ID

Coronavirus cannot spread in warm weather.

The World Health Organization website refutes this claim.

The World Health Organization website refutes this claim. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the coronavirus can be spread in all areas, hot and humid weather regions. Regardless of climate, it is very important to adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19 cases. The WHO also adds that cold weather and snow cannot kill the coronavirus and people must frequently clean their hands with alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Many organisations and scientists are researching the possible effects of heat on the coronavirus.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
