Abstract: We prove a Davies type double integral estimate for the heat kernel $ H(y,t;x,l)$ under the Ricci flow. As a result, we give an affirmative answer to a question proposed by Chow et al. Moreover, we apply the Davies type estimate to provide a new proof of the Gaussian upper and lower bounds of $ H(y,t;x,l)$ which were first shown in 2011 by Chan, Tam, and Yu.
