Coronavirus Can Survive Long Exposure To High Temperature by LordReed(m): 11:08pm On Apr 14, 2020
The new coronavirus can survive long exposure to high temperatures, according to an experiment by a team of French scientists.
Professor Remi Charrel and colleagues at the Aix-Marseille University in southern France heated the virus that causes Covid-19 to 60 degrees Celsius (140 Fahrenheit) for an hour and found that some strains were still able to replicate.
The scientists had to bring the temperature to almost boiling point to kill the virus completely, according to their non-peer-reviewed paper released on bioRxiv.org on Saturday. The results have implications for the safety of lab technicians working with the virus.

The 60-degrees Celsius, hour-long protocol has been adapted in many testing labs to suppress a wide range of deadly viruses, including Ebola.
For the new coronavirus, this temperature may be enough for samples with low viral loads because it could kill a large proportion of the strains. But it may be dangerous for samples with extremely high amounts of the virus, according to the researchers.

Do not rely on the fact that you are in a tropical region to slow the spread of the virus.

They should just accept the fact that this one can't be explained by science, instead of confusing themselves with all these baseless findings.

Just like HIV couldn't be explained by science right?

Where can we go through the paper? The link isn't accessible.

Ok. Thanks.

If the findings in the research are anything to go by, then what factors are really responsible for low cases of coronavirus cases and deaths in Nigeria and Africa?

BCG vaccine given to many Nigerians (and Africans) during childhood? Or other unknown factors?

Considering the average high temperatures in many places on this contingent and the relatively lower test figures, many things are not adding up.

We won't know the extent to which it has spread until testing is more widely done. You also will agree that we are reticent to go to the hospital especially if it is not serious to life threatening. Covid-19 does not always produce lifethreatening symptoms in all cases.
