Abstract:
The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of sunshine and wind velocity on COVID-19 cases in Jammu and Rajouri districts of Jammu Kashmir Union Territory. The timeline of data opted to analyze the weather parameters and COVID-19 cases was between 1st July 2020 to 20th August 2020. Pearson Correlation in SPSS 16.0 was implemented to define the magnitude of association between the number of daily new cases and weather parameters. During analysis, it was found that wind velocity was in non-significant negative correlation with COVID-19 cases in both the districts. However, the sunshine hours were in significant negative correlation with COVID-19 cases, i.e. with increase in sunshine hours the COVID-19 cases has decreased and vice-versa. Therefore, the study results may guide authorities and policy makers on taking specific measures to the curb the weather based COVID-19 spread in the region.
