Main Article Content
The results of a study of the influence of diurnal values of separate components of simple thermal indices (temperature and air relative humidity, wind speed) on the infection positivity rate with coronavirus COVID-19 (IR) of the population of Tbilisi from September 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021 are presented. It was found that IR values are inversely correlated with air temperature and wind speed, and positively correlated with air relative humidity.
The effect of four different thermal indices (air effective temperature and Wet-Bulb-Globe-Temperature) on the IR values averaged over the scale ranges of their categories was studied. It has been found that an increase of the air effective temperature leads to a decrease of the IR values. In the latter case, the level of significance of the relationship between thermal indices and IR values is much higher than in the case of the relationship between IR and separate components of these indices.
