WHO Myth Busters: COVID-19 Virus can be Transmitted in Areas With Hot and Humid Climates
In the effort to fight against the misinformation concerning COVID-19, the editorial team will be sharing myth busting information sourced from the World Health Organization.
In the wake of the pandemic, rumors have suggested that the virus does not spread in some areas because of warmer temperatures. However, according to WHO:
“From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather. Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19.
“The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands. By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.”
