That's the same all around the Westernised world - including here and Australia - and in many other places as well.There’s something to be said about outdoor living though (especially in Europe). During the summer, it’s much easier for people to meet (at a distance) outdoors whether it be in parks, bars or our own gardens. When it’s colder and wetter, people are more likely to break those social distance rules and meet up indoors, where the virus can spread easier.
Of course they are! You only have to listen to 25 different pronouncements from President Trump to see that. And unfortunately many other people are on that same bandwagon.I don’t think anyone is suggesting that the outdoor temperature itself affects the virus.
I'd prefer a lottery with personalized tickets. If you can't go, the ticket is given to the next person in the lottery.The queue is the fairest way, other slams don't have anywhere near the same amount of demand as Wimbledon. It also means proper tennis fans get in. I wouldn't mind if they ditched the overnight camping for a year though.
The Northern Hemisphere countries actually get a proper winter, whereas someone in Australia's "winter" is usually equivalent to a mild summer in the UK.Why do you say that, when it's nonsense? The Southern Hemisphere's peak of infection was in March and April, the same as the rest of the world. The difference is that those months are part of our summer, and the beginning of autumn. The biggest reason for infection numbers decreasing in the Northern Hemisphere's summer is nothing to do with the temperature - it's because medical staff have got much better at treating the virus. Infections decreased at exactly the same time in the Southern Hemisphere - which is our winter.
Latin America has the worst death toll in the world per capita, yet it's always hot. Of the biggest countries by population, India has the highest rates of infection after the USA, but it's always hot there too.
Please can someone put this theory to bed!
This may (and should) be the end of "The Queue".
That depends very much where you are. There's a hell of a difference between winter in tropical Darwin and winter in temperate Hobart. And please note that I said "Southern Hemisphere," not Australia, because New Zealand and the southern parts of Argentina and Chile definitely get a proper winter - snow in the south, and temperatures below zero. It's no different from the UK in that respect.The Northern Hemisphere countries actually get a proper winter, whereas someone in Australia's "winter" is usually equivalent to a mild summer in the UK.
