Halushko, N., & Ifeoluwa, O. (2021). DO WEATHER CONDITIONS INFLUENCE COVID-19 EPIDEMIC PROCESS?. InterConf, (49), 455-461.


We studied the influence of weather conditions (air temperature, absolute and relative air humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and geomagnetic activity) on the epidemic process of COVID-19 in Sumy that is a city in north-eastern Ukraine for the period 4.05.2020-22.03.2021. The study was carried out using nonparametric Kruskal-Wallis dispersive analysis. The obtained results show that all meteorological factors affect the COVID-19 incidence rate. The air temperature, absolute humidity and atmospheric pressure are the most important meteorological factors influencing COVID-19 epidemic process
