Greetings [Researcher name]:

I hope that you and your family are doing well.

I was wondering, are any [institution name] researchers looking at the possible correlation between environmental pollution and the epicenters of coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic?

For more information, please see the following article and it's list of references:

Below are some key facts on air pollution from the World Health Organization (

“Air pollution levels remain dangerously high in many parts of the world. New data from WHO shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants.

WHO estimates that around 7 million people die every year from exposure to polluted air.

Ambient air pollution alone caused some 4.2 million deaths in 2016, while household air pollution from cooking with polluting fuels and technologies caused an estimated 3.8 million deaths in the same period.”

Thank you.
