I think there is good evidence that the virus doesn't last as long at warmer temperatures outside a suitable host. So you would think it would die down now that summer is here, but instead, we humans of the United States have been going out of our way to provide plenty of suitable hosts and ensuring the transmission window happens quickly while the virus is still viable. Seems to be working. The virus is thriving despite a somewhat more hostile outside environment.

The virus is just another life form with the same agenda as all the rest, Replicate. We humans should get that concept easily, We've been replicating successfully for thousands of years. We cannot make this virus go away. (It will probably live on in other animals even if we eradicate it from humans.) But we can stop "feeding" it. ie giving the virus ample opportunity to infect other humans. That's our choice, We have chosen to help it thrive.
