Since the country is aggrieved with the serious outbreak of NOVEL CORONAVIRUS, it has been very difficult to conclude on how the virus will react over changing weather conditions. Many Indian scientists and doctors claimed that with the arrival of hot months (May and June) of summer will lead to lower the spread of the virus. But the numbers kept rising, hence it is impossible to predict anything regarding monsoon outcomes over COVID-19.
