AbstractThe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has triggered a pandemic and is still spreading around the world. Exploring the environmental factors that associate with the prevalence and transmission would improve the understanding of COVID-19 and contribute to the long-term control strategies of the outbreak. 1, 2 Besides the meteorological factors 3, to what extend do common air pollutants may affect the COVID-19 transmission remains unclear. To fill this knowledge gap, we examined the associations between common air pollutants and COVID-19 transmissibility in Chinese cities.
We obtained the daily count of COVID-19 cases for each Chinese city from the Chinese provincial health agencies and China National Health Commission (CNHC). 4 We quantified the transmissibility of COVID-19 by using the basic reproduction number (R 0), a unit-free measure of infectivity that is commonly used in infectious disease …
