Environmental Impacts on the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Quantitative Analysis
Because of COVID-19, people are forced to shelter in place, which disrupts not only their daily lives and normal routines, but also the economic and social standings of the world. To date, not many studies have been conducted to analyze the relationship between environmental factors and COVID-19. In this study, various environmental factors such as air pollution, air temperature, and air humidity will be studied to see if there is any correlation between these factors and the number of COVID-19 cases. Having a clearer understanding of the relationship between the amount of COVID-19 cases and the environment will provide information on how different factors impact virus transmission and how the virus spreads. It will also help determine the best timing or conditions for immunoprophylaxis, also known as the prevention of disease through passive or active immunity.
