Due to changes in fly-population sizes, the spread of campylobacter and incidences of food poisoning may more than double by 2080. Campylobacter is one of the leading causes of foodborne illness worldwide. Researchers used an infectious disease transmission model describing Campylobacter dynamics in Ontario to project how disease dynamics may change with increased fly activity under different climate change scenarios.
