September 2017 Focus, in North America, mosquitoes are often associated with carrying diseases over great distances.
With climate change, mosquitoes and other vectors organisms that can transmit disease to humans or animals such as ticks, flies and fleas are increasingly carrying infectious diseases further north. Scientists agree that the effects of climate change will include more sporadic and irregular precipitation, with longer periods of drought separated by more intense rainfall; and increasing average temperatures. These conditions may enable vectors and the diseases they carry to extend their populations and increase their ranges.
This, in turn, will increase the chances that humans contract allergy vector-borne diseases. This month, the Healthy Communities focuses on two important vector-borne diseases for Canada; Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus.
