According to wire service—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), medical experts in Kashmir say there is no study with them whether the COVID-19 will have greater or lesser impact in days to come. Principal Government Medical College principal Dr. Samia Rashid told—KNO that there is no study about the novel Corona-virus so far whether it survives in hot or cold weather. Dr. Nisar Ul Hassan the only Flu expert in Kashmir who headed the swine flu epidemic in past in Jammu and Kashmir said that the science is not about presumptions, assumptions and speculations first it has to be understood that this is a new virus. He said that fortunately they haven't seen much of infection in children and they have shown it very lesser because it's them (children) who spread it in the community more and “we have not seen it in pregnant women yet.” He said there can be no claims unless a proper study is done on the subject— (KNO)
