Coronavirus Linked to Air Pollution?

Author 512932
Message Al Hirschfield

This article doesn’t make an explicit direct link. But I bet it has a lot of people wondering. The precautions which have been taken in China to end the spread of the virus have actually, inadvertently, eliminated virtually all of the pollution from the areas experiencing the outbreak, as shown by the NASA satellite images. And the symptoms of the virus, such as coughing, asthma and difficulty breathing are identical to those related to air pollution. Since most of the cases outside of China don’t show any contact between the victims and others who might have been infected elsewhere, what is causing the other outbreaks? Is it actually related to the pollution itself? Since the elimination of the pollution (along with other drastic measures), the spread of virus has started to come under control in China. The question remains: why simultaneous outbreaks in different parts of the world?
