Although several studies have examined effects of air temperature and/or other meteorological variables separately on disease rates, the relationship of meteorological variables and human disease is, in fact, rather complex in the “real-world” [1,2] including the number of potential variables to be considered and their weighting. In other words, 1 °C of air temperature difference in a warm climate may not necessarily mean the same in a cold climate across regions on Earth [3,4]. Why some seasonality was observed in certain regions at certain times only is likely due in part to the imprecise weather estimation from mean, maximum, or minimum air temperature or the definition of study catchments or time period to be included.
