Colds are not caused by the low temperatures?!
The scientists consider that the reason why the colds are more often during the winter, in fact, is not the cold temperature, but staying with many people in one room, so the viruses could be transferred easily.
‘The reason of increasing the colds during the winter is not the temperature, but staying with many people in one room, so the virus is easily transferred from one to another person’ – says Recep Akdur, professor at the Ankara University.
The cold weather encourages the people to spend more time in closed spaces and increases the probability of spreading the virus from one person to another.
Adur considers that we could avoid the colds and flu epidemic if we stick to certain rules during the winter.
The professor reminded that the viruses are harmed by the cold weather and that’s the reason why people who stay in their warm rooms without ventilation are often prone to get diseased.
‘The persons who are suffering of cold should not go to work, at school or any other place where there could be more people. Shortly, they should leave their houses less in order to prevent the spreading of the virus’ – said Professor Akdur.
The virus spreads and acts faster if there’s a permanent or current low immunity.
The persons who are suffering of cold should wear the medical masks, so the spreading of the virus is reduced.
