“Three things the virus does not like: 1. Sunlight, 2. Temperature, and 3. Humidity,”
“Sunlight will cut the virus’ ability to grow in half so the half-life will be 2.5 minutes and in the dark it’s about 13 to 20 [minutes],” Nicholls said. “Sunlight is really good at killing viruses.”
“The virus can remain intact at 4 degrees (39 degrees Fahrenheit) or 10 degrees (50 F) for a longer period of time,” Nicholls said, referring to Celsius measurements, according to the transcript. “But at 30 degrees (86 degrees F) then you get inactivation. And high humidity — the virus doesn’t like it either,”
“I think it will burn itself out in about six months,” Nicholls said.
“The environment is a crucial factor. The environment will be unfavorable for growth around May,”
According to Viral Specialist in China, the peak of Coronavirus infection will be the mid ~ end of this month.
