Scientists have named the main condition for the spread of coronavirus. The main factor for the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is the rate of evaporation of moisture in the air.

As the RIA News", experts investigated the influence of humidity and air temperature and wind speed on the spread of the smallest droplets of saliva from an infected person.

It turned out that the viability of the virus is significantly reduced at high temperatures and low humidity due to the high rate of evaporation. The risk of contracting coronavirus increases in hot weather with high humidity.

The findings explain why the pandemic intensified in densely populated cities with hot and humid climates in July. In the summer, scientists from 32 countries of the world called on WHO to recognize the transmission of coronavirus through tiny particles in the air a significant factor in the spread of the disease.
