Abstract

The interaction of SARS-COV-2 and other respiratory viral pathogens remains an active area of inquiry. Non-pharmaceutical interventions resulted in historically low levels of respiratory viral pathogen infection rates during 2020. In this report, we present evidence that Rhinovirus and SARS-COV-2 demonstrated a negative correlation in their distribution over a period of 98 weeks since the declaration of the pandemic. Rhinovirus infections allow a unique insight into the circulation patterns of SARS-COV-2.
