Tong, S; Hu, Wenbiao; Nicholls, Neville; Dale, Pat; MacKenzie, J S; Patz, Jonathan A; McMichael, Anthony


This report assesses the impact of the variability in environmental and vector factors on the transmission of Ross River virus (RRV) in Brisbane, Australia. Poisson time series regression analyses were conducted using monthly data on the counts of RRV cases, climate variables (Southern Oscillation Index and rainfall), high tides and mosquito density for the period of 1998-2001. The results indicate that increases in the high tide (relative risk (RR): 1.65; 95% confidence interval (CI):...[Show more]
