Table 3 Spearman's correlation coefficients for association between monthly number of different viral infections and meteorological factors

From: RNA viruses in community-acquired childhood pneumonia in semi-urban Nepal; a cross-sectional study

Virus Relative humidity (%)a Temperature (°C)a Rainfall (mm)b
RSV 0.40 (P = 0.015) -0.058 (P = 0.74) -0.061 (P = 0.72)
Influenza A 0.023 (P = 0.89) -0.034 (P = 0.084) -0.12 (P = 0.47)
PIV type 3 -0.088 (P = 0.61) 0.65 (P <0.0001) 0.68 (P <0.0001)
PIV type 1 -0.38 (P = 0.024) 0.17 (P = 0.31) 0.23 (P = 0.18)
Influenza B -0.34 (P = 0.045) -0.31 (P = 0.066) -0.39 (P = 0.019)
hMPV 0.55 (P = 0.0005) -0.15 (P = 0.37) 0.022 (P = 0.90)
PIV type 2 0.15 (P = 0.39) 0.39 (P = 0.019) 0.30 (P = 0.078)
  1. aMean daily measurement for the month; btotal measurement for the month.
  2. hMPV = human metapneumovirus; PIV = parainfluenza virus; RSV = respiratory syncytial virus.
