Months ago, when the coronavirus spread was propagating like a wildfire, people estimated that with the rise in Celsius, the effectiveness of Covid-19 would substantially decrease. But sadly, that wasn’t the case, so now as the monsoon season has arrived and every single part of India is experiencing heavy rainfall, there is a discussion that arises whether it will magnify the strength of the virus or not.
Will monsoon impact on (Covid-19) coronavirus spread?
As it is a novel virus, the scientists are still studying the way it will behave with the monsoon season. So, scientists are looking out for hints that link with other viruses and how to behave in the rainy season.
Much still mysterious
In a recent coronavirus update, studies have found that several vector-borne diseases like malaria, dengue, and ChikunGunya arise because of rain. But rain also flushes out the breeding ground and interrupts the mosquito’s reproductive cycle.
But where things get similar is when Covid-19 gets compared with influenza, as both of them are much similar to respiratory diseases, they also multiply from person to person and affect human beings.
What does scientists say about this?
Doctors and researchers have concluded that the drop in temperature won’t result in coronavirus spread. As there is no proof that coronavirus spreads at low temperatures.
Even the director-general of Indian Council of Medical Research has stated that there is no result relevance between the temperature drop and spreading of the virus. It has also been stated that the virus spreads only through human interaction but not through the air.
Dr. Marc-Alain Widdowson, Director of the Institute of Tropical Medicine and previously worked at US Centers for Disease Prevention and Control said just like influenza and numerous other respiratory diseases, the true behaviours of them based on seasonal changes are not understood by science till now.
A scientist from CEBS Mumbai said that three major factors trigger the spreading of the virus, i.e. seasonal changes in the environment, human behavioural patterns, and characteristics of the virus.
He also pointed out some basic advantages of rain, as most people in India tend to spit out their saliva on open streets, which it gets in contact with other people can affect his immune system. Thus rain can wash away streets and make it safe to walk.
Most articles about coronavirus India have been giving coronavirus tips like washing hands frequently with sanitizers, social-distancing, covering the mouth and nose with a mask.
