COVID-19 appears to likely develop into a seasonal disease; UN

  • On Thursday, the United Nations said that COVID-19 appears likely to develop into a seasonal disease, cautioning though against relaxing pandemic-related measures simply based on meteorological factors.

  • Coronavirus first surfaced in China and has nearly killed 2.7 million people worldwide.

  • The first report, by an expert team that was asked with trying to shed light on one of those mysteries by examining potential meteorological and air quality influences on the spread of COVID-19, found some indications to disease would develop into a seasonal menace.

  • UN World Meteorological Organization had set up a 16-member team that pointed out that respiratory viral infections are often seasonal, “in particular the autumn-winter peak for influenza and cold-causing coronaviruses in temperate climates”.

  • It stated, “This has fuelled expectations that, if it persists for many years, COVID-19 will prove to a b strongly seasonal disease”.

  • It has been anticipated by modelling studies that transmission of SAR-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, “may become seasonal over time”.
