COVID 19: How Skiers Became Villains
Germany has over 92,000 COVID 19 cases, yet a very low death rate. And while the article goes into detail about why this is so, this is what caught my eye.
“It started as an epidemic of skiers,” explains German Professor Hans-Georg Krausslich, the head of virology at University Hospital in Heidelberg.
As he explains, the average age of Germans infected is lower than in other countries, in part because skiers vacationing in Austria and Italy brought the virus home with them, along with goggle tans.
A similar storyline plays out in other European countries.
