Global warming may slow the spread of dengue fever
Dengue fever is a potentially lethal disease of humans that is caused by a virus transmitted in the saliva of certain mosquitoes. Recent studies led by Penn State researchers have found that mosquitoes of the species Aedes aegypti that are infected with dengue virus are less tolerant of the higher temperatures associated with global warming.

Mosquitoes that carry dengue might not survive rising temperatures
Disease-carrying mosquitoes are expected to venture into new territory due to climate change and urbanization, but new research suggests that higher temperatures may curb the spread of at least one infection: dengue fever.

Global warming may limit spread of dengue fever, new research finds
Infection with dengue virus makes mosquitoes more sensitive to warmer temperatures, according to new research led by Penn State researchers. The team also found that infection with the bacterium Wolbachia, which has recently been used to control viral infections in mosquitoes, also increases the thermal sensitivity of the insects.

The Mystery Of India's Plummeting COVID-19 Cases
Last September, India was confirming nearly 100,000 new coronavirus cases a day. It was on track to overtake the United States to become the country with the highest reported COVID-19 caseload in the world. Hospitals were full. The Indian economy nosedived into an unprecedented recession.
