The influence of climate variables on dengue in Singapore

Abstract: In this work we correlated dengue cases with climatic variables for the city of Singapore. This was done through a Poisson Regression Model (PRM) that considers dengue cases as the dependent variable and the climatic variables (rainfall, maximum and minimum temperature and relative humidity) as independent variables. We also used Principal Components Analysis (PCA) to choose the variables that influence in the increase of the number of dengue cases in Singapore, where PC₁ (Principal component 1) is represented… Show more

“…The Cairns region is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, with (Van Den Hurk et al, 2010). In addition, stagnant water and higher humidity could augment the epidemic during a rainy season (Pinto et al, 2011).…”

“…A study of DF in Singapore described an increase of 22%-184% in reported cases given a 2-10 • C rise in maximum or minimum temperature [8]. Additional laboratory and field research in Cali, Colombia have also demonstrated a strong relationship between DF dispersion and temperature range [26,27].…”

“…However, more recently it was reported present (although not abundant) at 2130 m in Central Mexico [18] and 2300 m in Colombia [33]. Cultural parameters can involve the presence of anthropogenic water storing activities, which may be responsible for up to 79% of the reported cases [3,8]. Water storage tanks, potted plants, and similar peridomestic related containers can provide larval rearing sites proximal to populated areas.…”

“…Portanto, é de grande importância estudar o relacionando entre saúde e clima, pois esta é uma área preocupante quando se leva em consideração a ocorrência das mudanças climáticas (Caseiro et al 2003, Glasser 1997. Este fato é, potencialmente, a maior ameaça à saúde mundial no século 21 (Costello et al 2009 (Jetfen e Focks 1997, Halstead 2008, Smith e Gubler 2008, Camara et al 2009, Johansson et al 2009, Pinto et al 2011. A temperatura, por exemplo, afeta a taxa de maturação e replicação do patógeno no mosquitos, na densidade do vetor em um área particular e aumenta a probabilidade de infecção (Costello et al 2009 (Reiter, 2001).…”
