Body temperature, fear of water and fear of mosquitoes are among the top factors contributing to the Zika virus outbreak, according to a new study.
A new analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that people with lower body temperatures are more likely to get the virus, and also are more at risk for the disease’s complications.
Body temperature is a key marker of health and safety in the Zika outbreak.
Researchers believe that people living in hot climates and those living in areas with a high prevalence of the virus may have higher levels of body temperature.
The CDC analysis of health information from the US Centers for Health and Human Services (CDC), found that the average body surface temperature (BST) in the continental United States in October was 36.8 degrees Celsius (98.2 degrees Fahrenheit), while the average average temperature for people in the United States was 28.3 degrees Celsius (-3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
The CDC also reported that in the southern half of the country, the average temperature is 30.3 Celsius (-4.4 degrees Fahrenheit) and in the northern half, 30.6 Celsius (-5.4 points Fahrenheit).
The findings suggest that people who are living in cold climates are also at increased risk of contracting Zika infection.
The CDC said that people in areas of high Zika infection rates, where there is an elevated risk of transmission of the disease, should remain indoors.
But while there may be a link between body temperature and transmission of Zika, it is not a direct causation, the CDC said.
In the study, published in the journal Science, researchers analyzed data from two public health campaigns: a Zika prevention campaign launched in March and a campaign to address the mosquito population in Florida.
The study found that body temperature has an impact on the transmission of disease in both campaigns.
The Zika prevention campaigns were less effective than the mosquito control campaigns.
The researchers say that the more people living close to where Zika is occurring, the more likely they are to be exposed to the virus.
This might mean that it is more difficult for people to get infected with Zika if they are in a warmer climate, according the CDC.
The team says that while people living near Zika transmission areas may have lower temperatures, they are still at increased risks for the virus and complications, including brain damage.
People living in a colder climate, however, are more prone to transmission of infection.
Researchers say that this is because the body has a harder time controlling the virus because it has less blood vessels to move fluid around.
This leads to a higher risk of clotting, which can lead to brain damage, according CDC.
This is the first study to quantify the impact of temperature on Zika transmission, according Dr. Sarah K. Lacey, a professor of public health at the University of Pennsylvania, and her colleagues at the CDC, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the University College London.
This study suggests that if people living on the equator and in warmer climates are exposed to higher temperatures, their risk of infection will be increased.
It suggests that a greater body temperature in the summer could increase the transmission risk.
The findings come after a report from the World Health Organization (WHO) in October said that the global Zika epidemic is now at an estimated 2.6 million cases, and is likely to reach 3.1 million cases by December.
