Why We Shouldn’t Hope COVID-19 Is Seasonal Like The Flu

There's an excellent video discussion on 538 entitled Why We Shouldn’t Hope COVID-19 Is Seasonal Like The Flu that I recommend everyone play.

Here's a few lines that stood out for me.

"It's not an individual risk problem as it is a collective risk problem. The problem is not whether you will recover. The problem is whether you spread it to somebody who doesn't."

The video explains the virus does not go away in warm weather. Rather, it lessens but intensifies in the opposite hemisphere, then comes back. There are other issues related to humidity that scientists do not quite understand. For example, near the equator viruses can persist at the same strength near round. It is the temperate zones that are cyclical.
