Climate Diseases

More than half of diseases that infect humans from pathogens such as viruses and bacteria have been made worse by the deepening climate emergency, according to a new report. Researchers at the University of Hawaii reviewed more than 70,000 studies of all known infections and pathogenic diseases that have ever affected humanity, and looked at how global heating has affected them.

Writing in Nature Climate Change, they say diseases such as Zika, malaria, dengue and even COVID-19 have been made more severe to humans by climate-related events such as extreme rainfall, floods, drought, heat waves and wildfires. They add that altered rainfall patterns have expanded the ranges of disease-carrying pests such as ticks, fleas and mosquitoes, which carry malaria, Lyme disease, West Nile virus and other illnesses.
