During pandemic stage of emerging pathogen, climate has modest impact compared to population suscept

In influencing the trajectory of the pandemic stage of an emerging pathogen, a population’s susceptibility to a novel disease is more influential than climate factors like humidity. The results – based on a model informed by climate-dependence of known coronaviruses – may inform researchers’ effort to understand the likely trajectory of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,…
