Abstract: The Islamic Republic of Iran reported its first COVID-19 cases by 19th February 2020, since then it has become one of the most affected countries, with more than 73,000 cases and 4,585 deaths to this date. Spatial modeling could be used to approach an understanding of structural and sociodemographic factors that have impacted COVID-19 spread at a province-level in Iran. Therefore, in the present paper, we developed a spatial statistical approach to describe how COVID-19 cases are spatially distributed and to i… Show more

“…Fast spread of the disease and clustering of cases in overcrowded urban settings are well documented. 44 45 Findings in our study are concordant with this. However, it is also possible that this clustering may be exaggerated as COVID-19 testing and surveillance systems are potentially limited to urban settings due to scarcity of the testing.…”

“…Conducting scientific research in this field is a great help to health policymakers in preventing, treating, and controlling diseases. Recently, in the case of COVID-19 disease, Qom Province in central Iran has been one of the red provinces (17)(18)(19). The COVID-19 pandemic has exerted many adverse effects on various aspects of health, economy, and social life in the world, but what is certain is that in addition to human deaths, the disease has also placed a great economic burden on governments and people (20).…”

Currently, the novel coronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has caused acute respiratory infections called Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID- 19) in Iran and the world. The coronaviruses are important pathogens in humans and animals (3).…”

“…Additionally, a higher population density also en-hances these opportunities. Finally, a higher value of the ageing index is associated with a greater proportion of old people which has been found as correlated with higher exposures to the risk of COVID-19 contagion (Ramírez-Aldana et al, 2020;You, Wu, & Guo, 2020;Zhang & Schwartz, 2020).…”
