Hurricanes conjure up images of strong high-speed winds, non-stop torrential rain and intense flooding that can cause immediate destruction. There is, however, a silent threat that lurks behind these natural hazards: the risk of disease transmission — made all the worse when the storm hits health services hard. Hurricanes can increase exposure to infectious diseases due to the flooded areas they leave in their wake, and in which mosquitoes like to breed. Climate change is expected to lead to rising temperatures, changes in rainfall patterns, and an amplification of extreme weather events with implications for increasing the incidence of water-borne and vector-borne diseases. On top of this, severe weather events may result in damage to heal.

The discovery is featured on the cover of the Aug. 22, 2019 issue of Cell.
