Experts Predict If And When COVID Will Become A Seasonal Illness

We’ve been living in the age of Covid-19 for more than two years now. But will it ever become a common seasonal concern?
“In the United States, all of the largest spikes have been in the winter, so it is kind of seasonal in that respect,” says epidemiologist Andrew Noymer to the Huffington Post.
And, while the virus seems to be more present during the winter with colds and the flu, there is still no certainty that it would be seasonal-specific.
“A seasonal infectious disease is something that pops up predictably at the start of the cold and flu season and persists throughout that period of time,” infectious disease expert Mark Cameron tells HuffPost.
