This study investigates the effect of commuting in the spread of Covid-19 infection. After contextualizing this form of mobility in Europe, we will focus on the infection scenario in Italy, which became the epicenter of contagion in spring 2020. Our hypothesis is that commutes—especially commutes based on collective means of transport, which entail crowdedness—may act as critical agents of infection in the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. The study uses reflexive cartography, which relies on semantic metadata to visualize the territorial dynamics of the Covid-19 epidemic in relation to commuting.

Abstract

This study investigates the effect of commuting in the spread of Covid-19 infection. After contextualizing this form of mobility in Europe, we will focus on the infection scenario in Italy, which became the epicenter of contagion in spring 2020. Our hypothesis is that commutes—especially commutes based on collective means of transport, which entail crowdedness—may act as critical agents of infection in the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic. The study uses reflexive cartography, which relies on semantic metadata to visualize the territorial dynamics of the Covid-19 epidemic in relation to commuting.
