[Reblog] El Nino 2015: will it causes more infectious disease outbreaks than previous?
From the 14 March 2015 post at Abdullah Mahmud-Al-Rafat
El Nino for 2015 has already been announced by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Much of our discussions about El Nino is centered like ‘will it be more hotter than previous?’ Yes I agree that this is a reasonable topic to discuss. Surely we should be concern about global warming and how much it will be affected by coming El Nino. But this discussion is not the all. Besides of global warming topic probably its high time to discuss about ‘will it causes more infectious disease outbreaks than previous?’ Now a question might be commonly asked, does El Nino has any connection with infectious disease outbreaks? The answer is, Yes, it has. El Nino has direct/ indirect connection with infectious disease emergence/reemergence. After many years of research it is now established that climate changes like El Nino followed by human domination of earth’s ecosystems both have serious contribution in infectious disease outbreaks from wildlife reservoir
