Since the beginning of the corona crisis, chain letters have repeatedly appeared on whatsapp, facebook and co. At. Sometimes it is only about possible home remedies that supposedly help against the coronavirus, sometimes fake news is spread. You can read which chain letters are currently circulating about the coronavirus here.
In this article, we would like to take a closer look at one claim: in a widely circulated text, it is claimed that the coronavirus "dies at a temperature of 26 to 27 degrees".
Coronavirus has only low heat resistance – is this true??
Allegation: the coronavirus has only a low resistance to heat and therefore cannot withstand temperatures of 26 degrees and above.
EVALUATION: coronaviruses can withstand much higher temperatures.
FACTS: the core body temperature of almost all humans is more than 35 degrees celsius. So if sars-cov-2 actually died at less than 30 degrees celsius, the pathogen would not be viable in the human body.
