Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since 2019, almost every country in the world has been experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, with limited use of air planes, trains and buses; furthermore, some countries have restricted the movement of city dwellers and forced them to stay at home. Many restrictions on individual economic activity have emerged, increasing the economic damage of each country and worsening the living standard of each individual. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has had a very negative impact on human life, the atmospheric environment is improving positively by limiting the use of transportation and deactivation of industrial activities. In this Special Issue, we would like to invite scientific papers on the “Environment and Health Influenced by COVID-19 Pandemic", related to the effect of the COVID-19 lockdown on urban air quality; nitrogen dioxide concentration impacted by lockdown policy under the COVID-19 pandemic; particulate air pollution during the COVID-19 pandemic; safe transportation of human beings from COVID-19 area; COVID-19 patient mortality and air pollution; impacts of indoor and outdoor meteorological conditions on COVID-19 transmission; effectiveness of air pollution states between COVID-19 lockdown and un-lockdown; meteorological effect on air pollution state under the COVID-19 pandemic; air pollution mapping and monitoring in non-pandemic and pandemic area of COVID-19; air pollution assessment and control strategy in the area of COVID-19, etc. Finally, we would like to welcome any manuscripts that may be slightly beyond the above topics, because our main purpose for this Special Issue is to improve the air pollution state under the COVID-19 pandemic, using various prediction models, technologies, and reduction methods.
