BACKGROUND China's rapid economic development has resulted in severe particulate matter (PM) air pollution and the control and prevention of infectious disease is an ongoing priority. This study examined the relationships between short-term exposure to ambient particles with aerodynamic diameter ≤2.5µm (PM2.5) and measles incidence in China. METHODS Data on daily numbers of new measles cases and concentrations of ambient PM2.5 were collected from 21 cities in China during Oct 2013 and Dec… CONTINUE READING
