Coronavirus and its weather dependency

We’ve been talking about Coronavirus in our house pretty constantly since early February. I’ve come out into the open and admitted my family is doing self-quarantine to reduce spread (we don’t think we’re sick, but we don’t want to spread it by getting sick). I haven’t been very hopeful in a month due to what I see as complacency. The median/modal case scenarios in my head have been getting worse and worse over the weeks.

Over the last hour, I’ve changed and become a bit more hopeful because I’m optimistic that COVID-19 does have a relationship to weather. I’m not confidently optimistic, but there’s now a glimmer of hope. The reason is due to this preprint, Temperature and Latitude Analysis to Predict Potential Spread and Seasonality for COVID-19.
