Novel coronavirus could survive in high temperatures, EU report

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – According to the European Union agency for disease control, the new coronavirus is unlikely to disappear in summer.

This was announced on Wednesday, warning the public that the epidemic can survive in high temperatures unless and until measures are taken to curb its action.

According to the announcement there is very little chance that SARS-CoV-2, the name of the new virus, could behave like the other four coronaviruses that were endemic in human populations and are usually not detected in summer months.
