    Purpose: Coronavirus disease 2019 MESHD ( COVID-19 MESHD) has become a serious public health problem worldwide. This study sought to examine the associations of daily average temperature ( AT MESHD) and relative humidity ( ARH HGNC) with the percent increase in COVID-19 MESHD cases. Methods: Daily confirmed cases and meteorological factors in 38 districts of India were collected between 1st April 2020 to 30th April 2020. Taking a 5-day time lag of average values of the variables and multiple days-samples, we ran multiple models and performed appropriate hypothesis tests to decide the single preferred model for each sample data. Suitable fixed effects (FE) and random effects (RE) models with cluster-robust standard errors were applied to quantify the district-specific associations between meteorological variables and COVID-19 MESHD cases. Results: All FE models revealed that every one-degree rise in AT MESHD led to a decrease in 3.909 points (on average) in percent increase in COVID-19 MESHD cases. All RE models showed that with one unit increase in the malaria MESHD annual parasite index, there was a significant increase in 10.835 points (on average) in percent increase in COVID-19 MESHD cases. In both FE and RE models, ARH HGNC was found to be negatively associated with percent increase in COVID-19 MESHD cases, although in half of these models the association was statistically insignificant. Conclusion: Our results indicate that mean temperature, mean relative humidity, and malaria endemicity MESHD might have an essential role in the stability and transmissibility of the 2019 novel coronavirus.
