Does the corona epidemic spread rapidly in winter?
In the past days, it was widely believed that the corona epidemic could spread rapidly in cold climates. There seems to be some truth in this, given the increase in the number of corona patients reported during the winter. Winters in the southern hemisphere generally last from early June to late August. In the northern hemisphere, winter lasts from December to February. In some countries in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, the number of corona patients and deaths have increased significantly with the onset of winter. The following are some of the countries where the corona epidemic spread rapidly during the winter.

America

Covid 19 America
America is a state in the Northern Hemisphere. So the United States is a country where the seasons are usually clear. Winter begins in December and ends in February. The corona epidemic in the United States is rapidly increasing with the extreme cold of that time. Accordingly, the number of corona infections reported daily in the country in recent days has exceeded 200,000. Also, for the first time on December 9, the daily death toll exceeded 3,000. Below is how corona infections and deaths have been reported in each season since March 2020.
  • Spring (March-May) – Corona infections – 1,863,737
  • Corona deaths- 109,104
  • Summer (June-August) – Corona infections – 4,427,312
  • Corona deaths- 79,014
  • Autumn (September-November) – Corona infections – 7,674,632
  • Corona deaths- 86,181
  • Winter (December 1-December 26) – Corona infections – 5,468,166
Corona deaths- 65,621
Within 26 days of the onset of winter in the United States, the number of reported cases and deaths have risen sharply. The highest number of corona infections reported in a single day in the United States was recorded on December 18. At that time 255,774 patients had been reported. The highest number of deaths was reported on December 16. The death toll was as high as 3614 that day. Therefore, it is clear that the United States is likely to face some risks in the next two months.

Brazil

Covid 19 Brazil
Brazil is a state in the Southern Hemisphere. Winter in Brazil lasted from June to August. The highest number of infections reported in a single day was 70,869 on July 29. The highest number of deaths per day was recorded on July 29. The death toll that day was recorded as 1554. Following is how the corona epidemic in Brazil lasted each season.
  • Autumn (March-May)
  • – Corona infections – 514,847 Corona deaths- 29,314
  • Winter (June-August)
  • – Corona infections – 3,396,052 Corona deaths- 92,201
  • Spring (September-November)
  • – Corona infections – 2,403,839 Corona deaths- 51,650
  • Summer (December 1-December 26)
  • – Corona infections – 1,129,528 Corona deaths- 17,650
The above is the number of corona infections and deaths reported in Brazil during each season. When those data are observed, it is clear that the corona epidemic has spread rapidly in Brazil during the winter.

Russia

Covid 19 Russia
Seasonality can best be seen in Russia, a country in the upper reaches of the Northern Hemisphere. Accordingly, winter has dawned in the country these days. The number of corona infections and deaths reported from Russia is increasing due to the extreme cold weather prevailing during that period. Accordingly, the number of corona infections reported daily in the country in recent days has exceeded 25,000. Also, for the first time on December 11, the daily death toll exceeded 600. Below is how corona infections and deaths have been reported in each season since March 2020.
  • Spring (March-May)
  • – Corona infections – 405,841 Corona deaths- 4693
  • Summer (June-August)
  • – Corona infections – 589,476 Corona Deaths- 12483
  • Autumn (September-November)
  • – Corona infections – 1,326,737 Corona deaths- 22,719
  • Winter (December 1-December 26)
  • – Corona infections – 726,310 Corona deaths- 14,331
Only 26 days have passed since the winter in Russia. According to the above data, the number of corona infections and deaths reported in the country during those 26 days has increased significantly. Russia’s highest number of corona infections per day was recorded on December 24. On that day 29,935 patients were reported. Russia also recorded the highest daily death toll that day. That’s 624 deaths. This suggests that the corona epidemic is likely to increase rapidly during the winter.
