BreezoMeter’s Data
Now Open for Research Projects
Incorporate Air Quality Data into Research for Free

Today we face a new world challenge: The spread of a global virus which, according to experts, presents “a once in 100 years” catastrophic event.
BreezoMeter’s mission has always been to improve the health of billions worldwide.
This is why we’ve decided to open up our air quality data for free to research projects exploring the impact of poor air quality exposure.
  • In a study from Rome, Italy, authors observed that same-day levels of NO2 were significantly associated with total respiratory admissions , acute respiratory infections and asthma, suggesting that NO2 exposure increases the susceptibility to and/or severity of respiratory virus infections."

  • Authors of an epidemiological study from Hong Kong observed significant associations between the level of NO2 and hospital admissions for all respiratory and cardiovascular diseases included in the study."

  • The European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) has warned that dirty air in urban areas that causes hypertension, diabetes, and other respiratory illness could lead to a higher overall death toll from the virus currently sweeping the world."


  • If you are one of the millions of Americans breathing polluted air, you may be at a greater risk of catching the coronavirus and of having a more severe infection."
