Our hypothesis was that solar radiation caused the Virus (SARS-CoV-2) to have been activated. This data compares information about the correlations between the solar activity and the covid cases. The data allows us to estimate the correlation that exists between the cases of Covid-19 and the solar radiation emitted by the Sun. We find that the correlation is close to one, that is, there is a direct relationship, since in the period of the Pandemic Outbreak the cycle Solar was entering its most passive phase and therefore solar radiation is less active. Quite the contrary in very active periods that affect the reproductive cycles of some animals, plants and people.


Steps to reproduce

The source for solar activity it supported from the International Service of Geomagnetic Indices and for the cases of Covid Worldometer and Johns Hopkins University. The index aa, ap were evaluate with the death Covid-19. Pearson Corraltion Coefficient is show in table 1.
