In our research, we set out to analyse if temperature influences the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases. Researchers around the world have been working on this question, and a number of politicians and public health officials have commented on the idea publicly. In the scientific literature, mixed results have been presented, with some studies finding that the weather influences the spread or severity of COVID-19, and others finding that it does not.
