Assessing nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels as a contributing factor to coronavirus (COVID-19) fatality [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
Early studies show that risk factors associated with development of Covid-19 are (older age, history of smoking), hypertension and heart disease, diabetes, atrial fibrilliation and chronic renal failure. Many Covid-19 deaths were related to cytokine storm syndrome. The incidence of these disease can also be caused by long term exposure to NO2 air pollution. Exposure to NO2 causes inflammatory response in airways, which can induce synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines from airway epithelial cells which play a role in the cause of airway disease. They plot a bar graph of NO2 concentration and show correlation with deaths, but there are only 3 bins plotted. This work shows there is scope for future work in this area.
