Scientists have described the conditions conducive to the spread COVID-19

Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 just spreads faster in the regions with dry and cool climate. This is stated in the study, an international group of scientists published in the journal of the American medical Association JAMA Network Open.

He also noted that this hypothesis remains to be tested, and the best way to do this is to explore the behaviour of the virus in the laboratory, where scientists can monitor climate change.

According to who, the world COVID-19 sick more than 7.2 million people, more than 413 thousand were killed. The ten States most vulnerable to infection are: USA, Brazil, Russia, India, UK, Spain, Italy, Peru, France and Germany.
