Cover Story (view full-size image): Climate change is a significant public health issue with changing weather patterns and frequency of extreme weather events as a result of climate change contributing to changes in infectious disease transmission patterns. Weather variability is associated with variations in transmission rates of infectious diseases through mechanisms including changes in host innate immunity, human behaviours and changes in transmission due to altered virus survival when airborne and on surfaces. Understanding the impact of weather variability is particularly relevant during the current COVID-19 pandemic, which first emerged in December 2019 and has since spread globally, causing significant health, economic and social consequences. This review summarises and analyses the association between weather factors and COVID-19 incidence in the COVID-19 pandemic. View this paper.
