WHO says the current pandemic is one big wave and not seasonal

With the exact details about the new coronavirus’s behavior not known, all sorts of assumptions and rumors were going on. In the initial days, some said it wouldn’t affect the warmer countries. A few believed the virus would not spread rapidly in the hot summer season. Coronavirus surely proved everyone wrong and affected almost every country on the globe.

As we all know, it’s already summer in most of the Northern Hemisphere, and some countries like India summer is already over, and they have headed towards their monsoons already.

With countries like India hugely affected by COVID-19 in the periods of March to July, Which is like the peak summer season, it is evident that summer heat certainly can’t stop coronavirus.

By considering the coronavirus spread in the Northern Hemisphere, the World Health Organization has finally made it clear that COVID-19 has nothing to do with the seasons. People were hoping it would be seasonal because some other viruses such as influenza followed a seasonal trend.

“People are still thinking about seasons. What we all need to get our heads around is this is a new virus and…this one is behaving differently, it’s going to be one big wave. It’s going to go up and down a bit. The best thing is to flatten it and turn it into just something lapping at your feet,” Margaret Harris from the World Health Organization said in a virtual briefing in Geneva.
