OpenWeather Data in the Fight Against COVID-19

Why Look at Weather?

Atmospheric Parameters to Consider

  • Temperature: Higher temperatures correlate to less time spent indoors and stronger immune systems. Additionally, higher temperatures may have a direct effect on coronavirus particles.
  • UV index: High UV levels also correlate to less time spent indoors and stronger immune systems. Additionally, UV light may have a direct effect on coronavirus particles.
  • Humidity: Increased humidity may prevent coronavirus particles from remaining in the air for longer periods of time.
  • Wind speed: High wind speed may prevent coronavirus from particles remaining in the air for longer periods of time.
