Spring is on its way. Geir Bukholm, Director of Infection Control at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI), believes that warmer weather will help decrease coronavirus transmission.
The FHI’s assessments of the infection situation and the gradual reopening of society also take into account the impact of warmer weather.
“It is an important part of the assessment. The fact that summer is approaching will probably make the infection control measures appear more effective in real terms,” Bukholm told news bureau NTB.
– Do you expect worse transmission conditions for the coronavirus as it gets warmer?
“Yes, we do. Not necessarily just because of the temperature differences, but perhaps primarily because people will go out and be less inside… That is perhaps the most important thing,” he said.
