High Heat May Kill the Coronavirus

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A recent Chinese investigation suggests COVID-19 is highly sensitive to high temperatures and spreads faster in colder climates; its most rapid spread is occurring at a temperature of 8.72 degrees Celsius (47.7 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Fever is a core mechanism by which your body fights viral infection. You can simulate a fever by raising your core body temperature in a sauna, steam bath, or by engaging in physical movement to induce sweating
  • A number of studies have investigated the antiviral effects of sauna bathing. For example, a clinical study involving 50 volunteers showed regular sauna bathers had half the rate of common cold compared to nonusers. Those who use a sauna at least two or three times per week also have a lower risk of influenza and pneumonia
  • Sauna use kills bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses and boosts your immune function by increasing white blood cell, lymphocyte, neutrophil and basophil counts. By elevating your core temperature your body also releases heat shock proteins that help block the replication of influenza viruses
  • Coronaviruses (as a general group) incubate in your sinuses for about three days before moving down into your lungs, and appears to be destroyed by temperatures around 133 degrees F (56 degrees Celsius), which can easily be reached in a sauna

  • Even without government-recommended social distancing, loneliness is already at “epidemic” levels; 46% of American adults report feeling lonely, 47% say they do not have meaningful in-person social interactions on a daily basis and 43% report feeling isolated
  • Ease boredom and stay connected by video chatting with family and friends. Other creative solutions people have come up with include live-streamed DJ sets, online book clubs, cooking classes and other online events conducted via video conferencing or video chats
  • For those who were already isolated to begin with, the recommendation to connect through technology may not help much, since they lack a social network. Many of the most vulnerable, such as the elderly and disabled, also lack the technical know-how. For these individuals, the answer really lies in a compassionate reaching out by others, perhaps complete strangers
