Hmm..Interesting theory. Rotaviruses are more prevalent in winter in
the temperate climes, but are not seasonal in the tropics. The
incidence is roughly the same in both climatic regions, maybe slightly
more in the tropics. This suggests that at least in this case, virus
transmission and survival in the environment maybe the factors
governing winter diarrhoea. What do you think?
