Rumor: COVID-19 virus cannot be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates.

Fact:

From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather, according to the World Health Organization.

Regardless of climate, adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19, the WHO advises on its official website.

The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by frequently cleaning your hands, the WHO website says.

By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching your eyes, mouth, and nose.
