What's interesting here is the two linked articles paint a very different picture

Sometimes these things are just random. 

Cold weather is friendlier to the virus than hot humid weather is.

Not so sure about that. Singapore is always hot and humid. Maybe people just are weaker when its cold

It’s pretty hot and humid in Florida where I live and our state has been hit pretty hard by COVID-19.

Not sure that is true. We’ve had 80’s to 90’s temperature here in Florida. Just had 14 elderly folks test positive at a nursing home here in Ormond Beach. They were admitted to 2 hospitals, 7 each. The heat didn’t kill the virus.

COVID-19 seems to be mostly resistant to heat unlike the Influenza virus which usually disapears as soon we go towards spring. Just look at Singapore which is currently being hit with a severe second wave.

My opinion, take two sister ships, put them on the same itinerary but sailing every other week opposite of each other. This way they can have week to clean and disinfect that ship while the other sails. Could be a good short/medium term solution and at least bring in some revenue. Keep the same standards before boarding, questions, maybe temps and travel data to stay as safe as possible. These first sailings I really think will be OK as people and cruise staff will be hyper vigilant  about sickness, its when the complacency kicks in that will wold be more worried.

Is it possible that the heat and humidity suppresses the virus without killing it? 

 

I.e., things would have been worse had the Temps not been so high?

We still don’t ha e any data that shows a reduction in the heat. 
 

If you have some data, please share. It’s 92 today here. Yesterday was our worse day so far

No hard data, really just theorizing out loud based on anecdotal evidence.  Some  seem to think it will go away in the summer, only to return in the fall 

 

I copied this link from another thread. Very preliminary study, not yet conclusive.

  • If is just got hot you cannot count those people who just got it, that data will not be out for at least a week.

Exactly what the numbers suggest too Look at New York for an example.
