The vast amounts of data being collected around the world on meteorology, air quality and human health have allowed scientists to observe the effects humans have on our climate as well as the effects of climate on human health. As the global COVID-19 pandemic changes human behavior researchers are looking into how these changes impact the climate. Lessons learned through this research could help improve air quality in the future, potentially leading to improved health in populations affected by poor air quality.
