New research published in Geophysical Research Letters by doctoral student Michael Diamond and Professor Robert Wood found that the February lockdown in China caused a drop in some types of air pollution, but not others. The researchers used 15 years of satellite data from Shanghai to compare air quality during COVID-19 to what it would have been normally.
