The timeline of data opted to analyze the weather parameters and COVID-19 cases were between 1st July 2020 and 20th August 2020. Pearson Correlation in SPSS 16.0 was implemented to define the magnitude of association between the number of daily new cases and weather parameters. During cumulative analysis of the entire region, it was found that the COVID-19 cases decreased with increase in temperature and vice-versa and there was significant increase in COVID-19 cases with increase in humidity levels of atmosphere and vice-versa. Therefore, the study results may guide authorities and policy makers on taking specific measures to the curb the weather based COVID-19 spread.
