Coronavirus Death Rates Linked
to Air Pollution, Says New Study The new study was conducted by
researchers with the Harvard University
Chan School of Public Health.
Harvard Researchers, via 'The New York Times' The study found a 15 percent
increase in the possibility of death for
a person who lived in a county with
elevated levels of fine particulate matter.
While health officials have
been making such claims, the
study is the first to clearly link
pollution to coronavirus deaths.
In addition, the study found that just a slight
decrease in particulates over the past 20
years in Manhattan would have resulted in 248
fewer deaths due to coronavirus so far.
