Interaction of mean temperature and daily fluctuation influences dengue incidence in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Sharmin, Sifat; Glass, Kathryn; Viennet, Elvina; Harley, David

Description

Local weather influences the transmission of the dengue virus. Most studies analyzing the relationship between dengue and climate are based on relatively coarse aggregate measures such as mean temperature. Here, we include both mean temperature and daily fluctuations in temperature in modelling dengue transmission in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. We used a negative binomial generalized linear model, adjusted for rainfall, anomalies in sea surface temperature (an index for El Niño-Southern...[Show more]
