Figure 5

Meta-analyses for cold effects (left) and hot effects (right) on cerebrovascular deaths at lag 0–2 days (top), lag 0–13 days (middle), and lag 0–20 days (bottom). The cold effects are relative risks of a 1°C decrease in temperature below the thresholds. The hot effects are relative risks of a 1°C increase in temperature above the thresholds. The thresholds were 0.7°C in Beijing, −0.6°C Tianjin, 26.9°C Shanghai, 25°C Wuhan and 27.8°C Guangzhou.
