These researchers examined the relationship between climate factors and malaria incidence in the highlands of Bangladesh. No relationship was found between malaria cases and rainfall, temperature, and humidity.

Toro et al. 2010 looked for potential relationships between daily maximum, minimum and mean temperature, air humidity, air pressure, wind speed, global radiation and daily numbers of the heart-related deaths. The study examined data pertaining to 7450 cardiovascular-related deaths in Budapest, Hungary, between 1995 and 2004.
Among other findings, global warming was not related cardiovascular-related deaths. The authors conclude: “with these analyses, we confirmed the results of other studies (Donaldson et al., 1998; Gyllerup, 2000; Mercer, 2003) that mortality was in inverse relation to air temperature.”

Hence, claims that global warming will result in an increase in malaria or an increase in cardiovascular-related deaths are not supported by the data.
