How does the seasonal change affect Covid-19?

Researchers want to know if the disease is seasonal, like a cold. But while heat and humidity damage the virus in the lab, it's not the same as real life.

In temperate regions of the world, other respiratory pathogens and even other coronaviruses lose their strength as temperature and humidity increase. However, this remains only hope for the coronavirus feeding this outbreak. Research showing whether virologists have what they call "seasonality" is early and most contradictory. There is no definitive evidence that the summer season can save us.
