This is a great article discussing viruses more generally. It talks about why certain viruses have particular behaviors and discusses what the possibilities may be for the new coronavirus.

Does a great job of highlighting the state of our knowledge, which is… less than we'd like. It gets straight to the point: “…it’s too soon to know how the dangerous virus will behave in warmer weather.” But there's a good discussion of individual effects, how they've been studied, what *might* be: “ Scientists hypothesize that …” “I hope it will show seasonality, but it’s hard to know…” Etc.

Great Context

Doesn’t really answer the main question, but delves deeply into many former epidemics to scientifically look for any similarities or clues. I appreciate the honest laying out of facts, even if the ultimate conclusion is “we need to wait and see”

As per usual, National Geographic covers every angle of the warm weather argument in a balanced and easy to read way. This style of writing is a relief for readers and explains why they're still at 100% Credder ratings in both the Critic and User categories. It's hard to find anything wrong with their stories, which is how reporting should be.
