A Quantitative Look at Covid-19

Haluk Zülfikar

This paper will tackle COVID-19 from different perspectives with the help of statistical analyses. The very feature of the virus to create respiratory tract conditions, to aggravate the already existing respiratory conditions, and to transmit diseases via air droplets, together with other triggering factors like age and gender, reveals the significance of the dense population of living spaces and hence the importance of sociodemographic advancement. This scenario necessitates the modeling of the analyses to be made not only in the context of health conditions but also on the basis of the above mentioned variable groups and in a multivariate fashion. The study used multivariate decision-making methods, multivariate statistical methods, and quantitative and qualitative desk and field research. To ensure the data continuity and consistency, COVID-19 struggling systems and performances of the selected countries were modeled. The socio-psychological and socioeconomic conditions of the individuals of the selected countries were all at stake during the lockdown periods.
