SARS-CoV-2 is a novel viral species that has been identified as a highly infectious disease. Scientists have endeavored to collect essential information to characterize better the behaviour of this virus including droplet transmission and airborne effects. However, it is not clear thus far whether temperature can substantially alter the pandemic trajectory inside the physiological system. The present study aims to investigate how temperature may affect virus transmission in peristaltic blood vessels, and how virus density and diameter, and blood viscosity (i.e. viscosity of carrying fluids) will affect the transmission of the virus in the circulatory system. The modelling deployed assumes that coronavirus with a diameter of 120
