There's a new indication that COVID-19 may be a seasonal illness, similar to the flu.

A new Spanish study found that researchers have strong evidence the virus will be seasonal, with high transmission rates in dry, cold climates.

Researchers found low temperatures and humidity levels appear to help accelerate the spread.

The study argues a higher focus on air hygiene could reduce transmission.
