The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 as pandemic affected people at large and resulted in a high mortality rate throughout the world by the dreadful Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-COV-2).There are no proper supporting reports for the temperature having a vital role in the transmission of COVID-19 but certain statistics showed some amount of correlation as the present study provided certain statistical evidences on the temperature and location affecting the mortality rates associated with COVID-19. The spread of pandemic and the course of virulence showed its variation on the effect of temperature and irradiance. The study depicted that the mortality rates were lower for the places having the mean temperature greater than 14 C. The study also observed that to some extent the temperature has its significant impact in the transmission of the virus and the study brings forth that the countries possessing lower temperature should develop stringent policies for controlling the spread of pandemic.
