The theory that COVID-19 transmission will subside or disappear with the arrival of high temperatures has been disproved by a Canadian study released Friday, which reaffirms that the only thing demonstrated is that measures such as physical distancing do work.

For those who still believe the words of U.S. President Donald Trump, who said in February that COVID-19 would disappear with the rise in temperatures, Peter Jüni, professor of epidemiology and medicine at the University of Toronto and lead author of the study, has a simple message: no such thing.

According to the study conducted by Jüni and his team, and published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ), the reality is that after studying what happened in 144 regions of the world with more than 375,000 cases of COVID-19 as of March 27, the data supports that high temperatures do not affect the transmission and spread of the disease.
