According to new research from the DHS Science and Technology directorate, high humidity, temperature and sunlight annihilates the virus in saliva droplets on non-porous surfaces and in the air.

DHS Science and Technology Adviser Bill Bryan said:

“Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have in killing the virus on surfaces and in the air.

“We’ve seen a similar effect as well where increasing the temperature and humidity or both is generally less favorable to the virus.”

The recent discovery of the joint effort between the DHS’s Science and Technology directorate and President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force was revealed yesterday at the White House press briefing.

The study found that the virus dies quickly when exposed to direct sunlight and survives best in indoor conditions.

This development will come as no surprise to those in the African climate which is known to be very hot as some people on the continent have said before that the heat of the sun prevents the virus from spreading rapidly in the continent.
