CPO/IRAP supported study shows potential for climate forecasts to predict infectious disease outbreaks

Results show that both the onset and size of the 2018 dengue outbreak in Réunion island could have been accurately predicted two weeks in advance, with some accuracy three to four weeks in advance — enough time for enhanced preparedness measures.

CPO/IRAP-supported research explores critical gaps in understanding climate-related mosquito-borne disease transmission 7 August 2020

CPO/IRAP-supported research explores critical gaps in understanding climate-related mosquito-borne disease transmission

In recent years, there has been an alarming uptick in the number and geographic spread of mosquito-borne diseases, and the places where mosquitoes can thrive due to the temperature and precipitation of the area are shifting and growing as global temperatures rise and precipitation becomes more variable.
