Apr 09, 2020 13:42 IST

According to a new study by researchers at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, air pollution has been linked to higher rates of death in people suffering from Covid-19. The research says that dirty air increases risk of the respiratory problems that can be fatal for coronavirus patients. The research, done in the US, calculates that slightly cleaner air in Manhattan in the past could have saved hundreds of lives.People in polluted regions have a higher chance of dying from the virus, conclude researchers and urge nations to make efforts to control pollution levels during the ongoing pandemic.
