The scientists compared the graphics of pollination and the spread of colds, and then compared them with the dynamics of the incidence of coronavirus.

The beginning of flowering and the appearance of pollen may be the end for coronavirus infection. With such an assumption was made by scientists from the Open University of the Netherlands and Medical center Erasmus, who published a Preprint of a scientific article.

It shows the facts that the seasonal spread of viral diseases such as influenza, are substantially reduced in the period of flowering plants. Researchers believe that this trend extends to COVID-19.

In his scientific work the scientists compared the graphs of the spread of influenza and dusting in 2016-2020, and the incidence of coronavirus in the Netherlands.

Associate Professor of the Department of Biophysics at MIPT Oleg Batishchev admitted the correctness of his European colleagues. In his opinion, the abundance of pollen in the air can really associate microdroplets containing pathogenic viruses and slow their spread.

“on the other hand, flowering starts under certain temperatures and solar activity, which also affect the virus. High temperature and ultraviolet light reduce the activity of their distribution, so this may be a mere coincidence”, – quote “Izvestia” the words of an expert.

Meanwhile, the number of diagnosed cases of infection with coronavirus infection in the world, exceeded 13 million. This is according to the Johns Hopkins University, which summarizes the information of international organizations, Federal and local authorities and other public sources.

According to the University, the world was 13 026 225 new cases COVID-19. Died 570 923 people who have been identified coronavirus. For all the time of a pandemic recovered 7 038 163 patients.
