The impact of over 100 infected people in Singapore! 30℃・80% humidity cannot stop the virus, which indicates that new coronavirus is likely to proliferate even with high temperature and high humidity
Infected cases confirmed in Singapore have exceeded 100by March 2 and the total number of infected people increased to 106 with one Japanese included. In a neighboring country Malaysia, the total number of infected people has increased to 29 and the number of new coronavirus patients is increasing in a wide area of Southeast Asia.
At first the virus was said to be vulnerable to high temperature and high humidity like influenza, but the situation has significantly changed now. Recently, Singapore has often the high temperature exceeding 30℃and high humidity exceeding 80%.The climate there is just like around June and July in Japan. The number of new coronavirus patients has rapidly increased even in conditions of high temperature and high humidity.
Singapore has incomparably stricter countermeasures against new coronavirus than Japan and has developed legislation system to monitor people who are likely to spread the infection. The Singapore government has engaged in supervising people, which might be considered to be violation of human rights in Japan. In spite of such strict measures, the viral infection has been spreading.
In other words, it is highly likely that the new coronavirus infection will continue to spread even in rainy season and summer and we cannot expect the infection to end with time.
