There will also be other explosions in the parasite population. There will also be new mutant hybrid bugs and insects. The amount of water available from rivers may change due to changing rainfall patterns. There could be less available in Australia, India, southern Africa, South America, Europe and the Middle East, and more available in North America, Asia and central eastern Africa.
