Scientists predict that Covid 19 will become a seasonal virus – but not yet

WASHINGTON: A new study published in Frontiers in Public Health suggests that the disease caused by the COARD-19, SARS-CoV-2 virus may be seasonal in countries with mild climates, but only When the herd is exempt.
Until then, Coyote-19 will continue to circulate in all seasons. These results highlight the critical importance of public health measures to control the virus.
“Quad-19 has to live here and it will spread until the flock is exempt. Therefore, the public should learn to live with it and wear masks, on the best measures to prevent physical abuse.” “Distance, hand hygiene and avoidance of gatherings,” said Dr. Hassan Zarkat, senior author of the study at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon.
Dr. Hadi Yassin, co-author of Qatar University in Doha, confirmed this and said that there could be several waves of Covid 19 before the herd can be exempted.
We know that many respiratory viruses carry seasonal patterns, especially in hotspots. For example, influenza and a variety of coronavirus viruses that cause the common cold are on the rise in hot summers but circulate throughout the year in tropical areas.
The authors reviewed the seasonal viruses, the viral and host factors that control their weather capabilities, as well as the latest information on the stability and transmission of the Sars Cove 2.
Researchers have explained that the survival of the virus in the air and on the surface, the susceptibility of people to infection, and the indoor herdage vary from season to season due to changes in human behavior, temperature and humidity. These factors affect the transmission of respiratory viruses at different times of the year.
However, compared to other respiratory viruses such as the flu, Covid 19 has a higher transmission rate (R0), at least in part due to circulation in a large population of forgiving populations.
This means that, unlike the flu and other respiratory viruses, the factors that govern the virus’s weather conditions cannot prevent the spread of Covid 19 in the summer months. But, when the herd’s immunity is acquired through natural infection and vaccination, the R0 should drop significantly, making it more susceptible to the virus for seasonal factors.
Similar seasonal reports have been reported for other corona viruses, including those that have recently emerged, such as NL63 and HQ1, which run circulating patterns such as influenza.
“It’s a new virus, and despite the rapidly growing body of science about it, there are still some things that are unknown. Whether our predictions are correct or not remains to be seen in the future.” But we think it’s very likely, which is why we “know by now that Covid 19 will eventually become seasonal like other corona viruses,” Zerkat added.
“Regardless of the summer season, the Gulf states have recorded high per capita infection rates of 19. Although the main reason for this is the rapid spread of the virus in closed communities, it has not limited the spread of the virus. “We have confirmed the need for strict control measures,” said Dr Yassin.
