Which of the following do NOT accurately describe the relationship between El Niño and disease?

A

El Niño causes some areas to be wetter than normal, promoting environments ideal for mosquitos and, therefore, disease transmission.

B

El Niño causes some areas to be warmer than normal, promoting environments ideal for bacteria and, therefore, disease transmission.

C

El Niño causes some areas to be warmer than normal, promoting environments ideal for birds and, therefore, disease transmission.

D

El Niño causes some areas to be warmer than normal, allowing insects to survive through the winter. These larger populations of insects promote more disease transmission.

E

El Niño causes some areas to be drier than normal, promoting stagnant water as streams develop into stagnant ponds. These environments are ideal for mosquitos and, therefore, disease transmission.
