Evaluation of the potential relationship between Particulate Matter (PM) pollution and COVID-19 infection spread in Italy

INTRODUCTION To date, several scientificstudies focused on viruses diffusion among humans demonstrated that increased incidence of infection is related to airborne particulate matter (PM) concentration levels[1,2]. It is known that PM fractions (e.g., PM2.5 and PM10) serve as carrier for several chemical and biologic pollutants, viruses included. Viruses may be adsorbed through coagulation onto particulate … Continue reading
