New Study Finds This Everyday Thing Kills Coronavirus Very QUICKLY, Experts Still Say Pandemic Will Last Through Summer
The scramble continues to find a cure or some sort of well-documented treatment for the coronavirus in order to help the world come to a state of normalcy once again, or at least something resembling it.
So far we’ve seen success with a number of drugs and treatments ranging from hydroxychloroquine, to remdesivir, and then less tested treatments such as the drug acetazolamide and even just laying them down on their stomachs.
But there is a study on something else that seems to be destroying the virus and destroying it very quickly.
Sunlight is said to be something that kills the virus as well as high humidy conditions. If this is the case, summer in the south should be a piece of cake because that’s all that we get in down here.
Preliminary results from government lab experiments show that the coronavirus does not survive long in high temperatures and high humidity, and is quickly destroyed by sunlight, providing evidence from controlled tests of what scientists believed — but had not yet proved — to be true.
A briefing on the preliminary results, marked for official use only and obtained by Yahoo News, offers hope that summertime may offer conditions less hospitable for the virus, though experts caution it will by no means eliminate, or even necessarily decrease, new cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. The results, however, do add an important piece of knowledge that the White House’s science advisers have been seeking as they scramble to respond to the spreading pandemic.
The study found that the risk of “transmission from surfaces outdoors is lower during daylight” and under higher temperature and humidity conditions. “Sunlight destroys the virus quickly,” reads the briefing.
However, health experts are still saying that the coronavirus will remain as a pandemic throughout the summer. That means that the transmission rate of the virus will be between 0.9 and 1.2 people contracting the virus for every person who has the virus already.
If we can do right and keep following proper hygiene practices and being cautious, I think we can defeat this.
