Abstract

The number of COVID-19 cases occurred unevenly across the national territory. This analysis adopts a provincial perspective on the spread of COVID-19. A Multiple Linear Regression (MLR) analysis shows the positive link between the number of COVID-19 cases with population density, life-expectancy and pollution level. While the result of a positive link with the population density and the level of pollution is rather intuitive, this is not the case w.r.t. life expectancy whose result calls for further investigation.
