-4C would be 28.4 F - I think, any way that is not that cold. I moved from the tropics to Minnesota during the winter - wind chill 30 below 0 and I did alright. I know I felt it more than the residents but I stayed warm with clothes, blankets and being indoors. Not only that respiratory problems are not usually weather related but are caused by a virus or bacteria moving among people that are in close proximity (indoors - shopping areas, homes, schools and such). I don't get it, and then all the buffalo and cattle that died there as well.
Seems all mass deaths of animals and humans getting sick are being blamed on weather. What is really going on that they are not telling us?

Well, it depends on what you're acclimatised to- the fact that this temperature is a 36 year record shows that they're not used to this- I know I couldn't cope with a whole summer of 30 or 40+ temperatures, or whatever they have over there. Also, some of these might be elderly and thus be more susceptable to the cold, and the people generally may well have lower living standards, -4 would be pretty cold if you lived in a shack with no central heating/insulation.edit on 18-1-2011 by ScepticalBeliever because: (no reason given)

I think it should be known that I regularly sunbathe in -4C weather, right outside my igloo on the frozen Canadian tundra.
