Climate change is directly related to changes in environmental conditions. Climate and weather are the physical components of an ecosystem. If there are some changes in the physical component of the ecosystem, it will have an effect on the incidence and pattern of spread of influenza disease. Influenza (flu) is an infectious respiratory disease caused by influenza virus which can cause mild to severe illness. The cause of influenza is an RNA virus that belongs to the family of Orthomyxoviridae which can attack birds, mammals including humans. The virus is transmitted through infected saliva that comes out when people cough, sneeze or through direct contact with secretions (saliva, saliva, snot) sufferers. The writing of this article was conducted to determine the corelation between climate and influenza disease events. This writing uses the literature review process of searching articles through Google Scholar. Journal articles found using English and key words used in journal searches are Climate Corelation With The Incidence Of Influeza Disease. Journal articles are found with different titles but refer to the corelation between climate and influenza disease events. Of the six journal articles that were used as review reviewers found that there was a corelation between climate and the incidence of influenza. Influenza trends are increasing in the rainy season with very low humidity.
