Precipitation Anomaly and Dengue Outbreaks in South East Asia: 2015-2016
The 2015-2016 El Niño event brought changes to weather conditions across the globe that triggered regional disease outbreaks, including mosquito-borne dengue fever in Southeast Asia. This visualization with corresponding timeplot graph reveals the relationship between precipitation anomaly in Southeast Asia and dengue outbreaks. Drier than normal habitats drew mosquitoes into populated, urban areas containing the open water needed for laying eggs. As the air warmed, mosquitoes also grew hungrier and reached sexual maturity more quickly, resulting in an increase in mosquito bites.

Disease ReportsID: 1029
Disease reports were obtained from ProMED Mail (Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases), an online informal disease outbreak reporting systems. Disease incidents and/or outbreaks are reported by contributors/subscribers worldwide and subsequently screened, reviewed and validated by expert moderators. ProMED also includes reports from media, government and health agencies internationally.
