As the Earth warms there will be a lot more viruses, and they will get deadlier & deadlier. I fear that this is just the start.

Plague, whether preumonic or Bubonic, is not as rare as it seems. It happens worldwide and sprouts up occasionally here and there.
If one REALLY wanted to become paranoid one could use this site.

Why? What aspect of virology makes this so?

I'm no scientist however I know that cold weather keeps viruses in check

Again, what aspect of virology makes this so? Personal anecdotal evidence is not acceptable.

I have hardly ever been infected with a virus during the summer. It is almost always during the winter.

Why is it that I feel if this happened in the US our govt wouldn't hesitate and would just wipe the town out, blame it on some terrorists and start another war.

I saw my neighbor sneezing so I phoned the Pentagon and ordered up an airstrike.

You don't have to believe me, ask a scientist.

I did, they said that weather has nothing to do with new viruses becoming more deadly.

I thought this article was about the plague, which is a bacterial infection, usually Yersinia pestis . Bacteria do thrive in warmer locations and also so do fungus. How did it go to viruses? Someone must have used the wrong word I guess.

So anyway, the problem must have not spread because the quarantine was lifted. Maybe they shipped all the rats to us along with something they were exporting. Shipping things all over the world is not such a good idea.

Germs multiple quicker in warm moist environments. So maybe.

'Germ' is a generic term for any type of pathogen. Viruses do not grow stronger in warm weather.

You get sick more in the winter because your body spends more energy keeping you warm, your also indoors more with more people in a dry climate that may not promote faster growth in germs but it dries up and weakens your mucous membranes making your respiratory system more susceptible . At least that's what they taught us in school.

I didn't say they get stronger.
