Expert Q&A: Harvard’s COVID-19 and Air Quality Study

 

The medical and scientific communities all suspected there was a link between the risk of COVID-19 and air quality. But until recently, that link was unproven.

In this exclusive interview, Tomorrow.io’s Chief Scientist Dr. Daniel Rothenberg interviews Xiao Wu, a Ph.D candidate at Harvard University on his study of how air quality directly impacts COVID-19 — using Tomorrow.io’s global air quality data set.

This discussion covers:

  • Why Wu specifically investigated whether or not there was a linkage between air quality and COVID-19
  • How air quality relates to underlying or pre-existing conditions that can adversely impact one’s experience with COVID-19
  • The key results and conclusions of the study, including the impact of air quality on health overall
  • The key takeaways for healthcare and environmental leaders
