COVID-19 is spread through person-to-person contact but the incidence and severity of the disease are potentially influenced by many factors, including air pollution. The study requested by ENVI committee discusses the potential effects of air pollution on COVID-19, given what is known about health effects of air pollution in general. It concludes that current studies on correlations between air pollution and the spread of COVID-19 are not robust enough to establish a causal connection.
