Background and Objective: The objective of this study was to understand the effect of temperature and precipitation in COVID-19 daily death and daily transmission. Method: Two estimated model were developed for this study and panel data model was applied to understand the effect of temperature and precipitation in COVID-19 daily death and daily new cases. The study was carried out using secondary data, data were collected of 3 consecutive month of seven cities around the world which were effected most by the COVID-19 and varying of meteorological parameters to study the effect. Data included weather variables i.e temperature (average temperature, maximum temperature and minimum temperature), precipitation, daily new cases and daily new death. Finding: First estimated model which included average temperature and precipitation showed a significant association of average temperature with daily death with p-value 0.02748 and second estimated model which included average temperature, precipitation, maximum temperature and minimum temperature, the average and maximum temperature had significant association with the daily transmission with p-value 0.04 and 0.02 respectively. Conclusion: Increase in average temperature reduces daily death and increase in maximum temperature reduces transmission. This study helps to predict in South Asia if vaccines aren’t available and strong preventive measure strategy isn’t developed there is chance of second wave of COVID-19 as winter session is about to start.
