The German MEP Sven Giegold, who specializes in climate change and environmental protection, presents a "scientific" study that the Environment and Health Committee of the European Parliament commissioned on his initiative "to investigate the specific connection between air pollution and Corona" .

The result is what "many scientists suspect", namely "that air pollution could have negative effects on the number of transmissions and the dangers of COVID-19 infection". The data situation, however, as Giegold himself admits, is thin. His actions feed a certain suspicion.
