A recent study suggests that high temperatures and high humidity reduces the transmission of COVI-19. The study which was performed in China looking into various cities in China with different climate suggested that  an increase of just one degree Celsius and 1% relative humidity increase substantially lower the virus’s transmission.

This finding indicates that the arrival of summer and rainy season in the northern hemisphere can effectively reduce the transmission of the COVID-19.
