What's interesting here is the two linked articles paint a very different picture

Not so sure about that. Singapore is always hot and humid. Maybe people just are weaker when its cold

Not sure that is true. We’ve had 80’s to 90’s temperature here in Florida. Just had 14 elderly folks test positive at a nursing home here in Ormond Beach. They were admitted to 2 hospitals, 7 each. The heat didn’t kill the virus.

COVID-19 seems to be mostly resistant to heat unlike the Influenza virus which usually disapears as soon we go towards spring. Just look at Singapore which is currently being hit with a severe second wave.

My opinion, take two sister ships, put them on the same itinerary but sailing every other week opposite of each other. This way they can have week to clean and disinfect that ship while the other sails. Could be a good short/medium term solution and at least bring in some revenue. Keep the same standards before boarding, questions, maybe temps and travel data to stay as safe as possible. These first sailings I really think will be OK as people and cruise staff will be hyper vigilant  about sickness, its when the complacency kicks in that will wold be more worried.

Is it possible that the heat and humidity suppresses the virus without killing it? 

 

I.e., things would have been worse had the Temps not been so high?

We still don’t ha e any data that shows a reduction in the heat. 
 

If you have some data, please share. It’s 92 today here. Yesterday was our worse day so far

No hard data, really just theorizing out loud based on anecdotal evidence.  Some  seem to think it will go away in the summer, only to return in the fall 

 

I copied this link from another thread. Very preliminary study, not yet conclusive.

  • If is just got hot you cannot count those people who just got it, that data will not be out for at least a week.

Exactly what the numbers suggest too Look at New York for an example.

And this is more of the denial and deflection. We have one poster blaming the poor US results on a hotspot in New York and then another picking a non-hotspot in the US to compare to a Canadian hotspot.  Cherry picking your data to give you false equivalencies is sad.

To date the US has over 34,000 deaths due to the virus. Canada has about 1300. Comparing the two countries per capita the US is not 10% higher, or 20% higher, or even 50% higher. It's over 300% higher and it's not getting better.

Said it before and saying it again, with their wealth and resources the US should be crushing this. But the opposite is happening. It was happening last week. It's still happening now. Cherry pick all you like, it will still be happening next week and next month.

Blame New York, blame Democrats, Republicans, doesn't matter. Nothing is happening that is going to change that ratio. In fact it will probably get worse.

 

 

 

I could not be less happy to be totally right.
