Climate change may accelerate spread of West Nile virus

The model suggests that the optimum temperature for transmission is 2425°C (75.277°F). Around 70% of the U.S. population live in regions where summer temperatures are currently below this range, whereas 30% live in areas above the range.The authors write in the journal eLife, “we might expect a net increase in transmission of West Nile virus in response to the warming climate, even as hot temperatures suppress transmission in some places.”“As the climate warms, it is critical to understand how temperature changes will affect the transmission of mosquito-borne diseases,” says lead author Marta Shocket, who was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford when the models were developed and is now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of

Coronavirus infections have increased by a further 4,422 cases – the latest test results shared in the UK on Saturday reveal.Official government figures now show that 390,358 Brits have been infected with the potentially fatal virus.While the death count in the UK increased by 27 on Friday to bring the total killed by the virus to 41,759.The increase of deaths is the largest single-day jump in fatalities related to the virus since May 8.The revelation that 4,322 new infections were recorded on Friday is an increase of 783 cases compared to the 3,539 cases recorded last Friday.Friday therefore carries the unfortunate title of holding the biggest single-day jump in infections since May 8 – when 4,649 cases were recorded in one day.Of the 21
