I believe the reason colds are seasonal has more to do with our response to weather, rather than the weather itself. In other words, colds increase an epidemiologically significant period of time after the little germ bags (children) get together when school beings in the fall. We are also more likely to be indoors and in closer proximity at those times.

The same might have happened with COVID, but we are in various stages of lockdown. So there is no clear "seasonal" factor. It's our response to the antigen, not the antigen itself that causes the seasonality.
