Covid-19 Incidence and its Main Bionomics Correlations in the Landscape Units of Monza-Brianza Province, Lombardy

Author(s): Vittorio Ingegnoli, Elena Giglio

Today both ecology and medicine pursue few systemic characters and few correct interrelations. After the exciting result of the relation between the bionomic functionality (BF) and the mortality rate (MR) in Monza-Brianza Province (Ingegnoli [1]), the curiosity to test the correlation of structure/function conditions of the same landscape units (LU) even Vs. Covid-19 incidence was experienced, becoming the aims of this work. The necessity to follow a new scientific paradigm, shifting from reductionism to systemic complexity, leads to the emergence of a new life concept, not centered on the organism, but on the entire “biological spectrum”. So, limits to traditional ecology have emerged, e.g., the ambiguous concept of ecosystem or the lack of the hierarchical interscalar relationships, leading to the emergence of an ecological upgrading discipline, Landscape Bionomics. Following bionomics principles, the territory of Monza-Brianza was studied in all the 55 municipalities (LU). The correlation of Covid-19 (incidence %) Vs. the bionomic functionality (BF) resulted evident: at BF = 1.0, Covid-19 = 0.90 %, while at BF = 0.45, Covid-19 = 1.20 %. Other parameters, unpredictably, have a weak correlation, as urbanization, population age, and agriculture, except the bionomic carrying capacity. A good convergence with the cited research (BF Vs. MR) results from BF Vs. Covid-19. So, biological studies may affirm that the relation between Landscape bionomic state and human pathologies is essential, even if not limited to pollution or infection agents per se, as Etiological paths may demonstrate.
