global warming could change the nature of the spread of infectious diseases.
According to Columbia University, global warming will lead to a large-scale spread of known infectious diseases as well as to the "transfer" of such diseases from tropical latitudes in regions with temperate and cold climates.
Accurate forecasts now do not seem possible, but it is clear that the geography of disease will depend on the new geography of the spread of insects and microorganisms.
unequivocally that the world will increase the number of malaria cases, which spread by mosquitoes.If the surface temperature will rise, the mosquitoes will migrate them to previously inaccessible regions of the world, in parallel with this will increase the number of people bitten by them and the number of diseases.
second most likely scenario - the changing nature of the epidemic of influenza.In the tropics flu sick all year round;in cool - there is an epidemic during the cold season.If global warming continues, the inhabitants of Nor
In turn, the study of the University of Michigan showed that the world can expect an epidemic of diseases like cholera.
