Warning that 'winter time could be COVID-19 time'

An Australian study shows a link between lower humidity and greater spread of the virus

Coronavirus could become a seasonal disease, with people at greater risk of contracting it during winter, warn Australian researchers after their study showed lower humidity may lead to a significant increase in cases.

The study conducted in NSW during the early stages of the COVID-19 epidemic found an association between lower humidity and an increase in locally acquired positive cases.
