    Impact of Temperature on Upper Respiratory Tract Infections in Lanzhou Based on the Distributed Lag Model

    Guangyu Zhai1,2, Kuan Zhang2, Guorong Chai1,*

    Molecular & Cellular Biomechanics, Vol.18, No.1, pp. 21-31, 2021, DOI:10.32604/mcb.2021.014287

    Abstract The study mainly analyzed the relationship between temperature and the upper respiratory tract infections (URI) in Lanzhou. We collected the daily URI and meteorological data from 2010 to 2015. A distributed lag non-linear model was used to examine the relationship and potential effects of different temperatures and different lag days on the morbidity of URI. The results showed that the morbidity of URI was significantly related to the meteorological factors, and the peak of the onset of the disease usually occurred between November and February the next year. The correlation analysis was carried out between… More >

    Abstract The novel coronavirus responsible for COVID-19 has spread to several countries within a considerably short period. The virus gets deposited in the human nasal cavity and moves to the lungs that might be fatal. As per safety guidelines by the World Health Organization (WHO), social distancing has emerged as one of the major factors to avoid the spread of infection. However, different guidelines are being followed across the countries with regards to what should be the safe distance. Thus, the current work is an attempt to understand the virus deposition pattern in the realistic human… More >
