Paper on climate effects on invasive Salmonella disease published in Scientific Reports

02 Jan 2020

Congratulations to MPRU PhD student Deus Thindwa and co-authors on their recent publication! Deus and colleagues used mathematical modeling to visualize seasonal dynamics of typhoidal and non-typhoidal invasive Salmonella disease in Blantyre, Malawi over 15 years. Their model calculated the relative risk of invasive disease after heavy rainfall and temperature fluctuations, which differed for typhoidal and non-typhoidal Salmonella infections. Their results suggest distinct transmission patterns for the subspecies and the need for customized prevention strategies.
