Spring and summer weather could prove a relief.

Published

A case study by a team of Chinese academics suggests that warm weather and humidity do deter the spread of the coronavirus, a development that could prove to be a welcome relief for nations afflicted with the disease as they approach the warmer spring and summer months.

The study, titled “High Temperature and High Humidity Reduce the Transmission of COVID-19,” involved analysis of coronavirus diagnoses in various cities across China. Researchers examined the intensity of outbreaks in climates ranging in heat and humidity levels.

Their summary of results describes the effects of climate on transmission of the disease in clear terms.

We find, under a linear regression framework for 100 Chinese cities, high temperature and high relative humidity significantly reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

The scholars even go on as to state that coming summer climates in the northern hemisphere will deter spread of the disease, although it’s hard to qualify to exact extent.

A weakness to warm climate would place the coronavirus in a similar category to other viral diseases, such as influenza. It’s long been known that warm and hot climates are not favorable for the spread of disease.

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

The study was published on March 14th. Jingyuan Wang, Ke Tang, Kai Feng and Weifeng Lv are credited as its authors. All but Tang(Tsinghua University) are associated with Beihang University.

This development could not only prove a welcome relief to American states and cities awaiting spring and summer in the midst of a nationwide crisis, but a godsend to states such as Texas, Arizona, and California that have hot climates. It’s possible these states could altogether avoid the very worst of the virus.

Biden Says President “Has To Be Able to Provide For Providing Significantly No More Masks”

Wait, what?!

Published

on

Joe Biden’s filled his latest livestream from the recreation room of his Delaware home with a smorgasbord of bizarre verbal gaffes, lining up incomprehensible sentences throughout the MSNBC segment.

The former Vice President seemed to lose his grasp on his phrasing in a pronounced fashion closer to the end of the segment, stating that President Donald Trump “has to be able to provide for providing significantly no more masks to protect these – these first responders and these docs and nurses.”

When asked about his primary message on the federal response to the virus by MSNBC’s Yasmin Vossoughian, Biden gave a seemingly contradictory answer.

My message is that the president has to move more rapidly. You know, we know from experience that speed matters. We know that you can’t go too fast. It’s about going too slow.”

Biden’s elaboration on his statement didn’t seem to provide much clarification.

And in order to avoid that – those very high numbers, we have to do at least several things. One, we have to depend on what the president is going to do right now. And first of all, he has to tell, wait until the cases, before anything happens. Look, the whole idea is, he’s got to get in place things that were shortages of.”

Watch the segment here:

The segment isn’t the first time that the presumptive Democratic nominee has struggled to express his train of thought. Since physical campaign events have been put on hold by the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, Biden has consistently given livestream appearances chock full of unclear sentences.

Leading podcaster Joe Rogan expressed his frustration with the Democratic Party’s unwillingness to question his mental acuity in response to footage of Biden’s livestream statements. Some leading Democrats have even expressed frustration in regards to the seeming irrelevance of Biden’s daily cable appearances, when compared to the vigorous press briefings of both President Donald Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
