COVID-19 is mostly striking areas between 30 to 50 degrees latitude, like Wuhan, Daegu, Northern Iran, Northern Italy, Seattle, and New York City.

Deep dive: Coronavirus vs. population and temperatures
https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather- ... res/701036

Interesting article. Some highly populated areas are affected by COVID-19 like China, South Korea, Japan, Iran, Italy, Spain, and France. Same goes with Seattle, New York City, and Boston. India on the other hand has not seen many cases.

There are other factors that come to play.

Why do dozens of diseases wax and wane with the seasons—and will COVID-19?
https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/03 ... l-covid-19

Long, but interesting read. SARS was contained due to intensive containment efforts. MERS jumps from camel to humans. Coronaviruses often cause colds, which occur in the winter. Coronavirus colds rarely occur in the summer. It is unknown if COVID-19 will be like other coronaviruses. There have been transmission in Singapore, but not widespread like in Wuhan, Daegu, Milan, Tehran, Madrid, London, Seattle, and New York City.

Spring and Summer is coming. It could curb the spread of COVID-19.

As we approach summer, there is more ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. It could reduce the spread of COVID-19.
