Abstract
On March 12th, 2020, the WHO declared COVID-19 as a pandemic. The collective impact of environ-mental and ecosystem factors, as well as biodiversity, on the spread of COVID-19 and its mortalityevolution remain empirically unknown, particularly in regions with a wide ecosystem range. The aim ofour study is to assess how those factors impact on the COVID-19 spread and mortality by country. Thisstudy compiled a global database merging WHO daily case reports with other publicly available measuresfro...
