Daily average minimum temperature in northern, central and southern regions of Chile. The northern geographic area comprises the 5 northernmost regions of: 1) Arica y Parinacota, 2) Tarapacá, 3) Antofagasta, 4) Atacama, and 5) Coquimbo; the broad central area includes the regions of 1) Valparaíso, 2) Metropolitana, 3) O’Higgins, and 4) Maule; and the broad southern geographic area includes the southernmost regions of 1) Bíobío, 2) Araucanía, 3) Los Ríos, 4) Los Lagos, 5) Aysén, and 6) Magallanes. Figure S2. Pandemic peak timing based on weekly time series of influenza-like-illness (ILI) cases for 29 Chilean ILI sentinel sites of Chile during 52 epidemiological weeks in 2009 as reported to the Chilean Ministry of Health and shown in geographic order from north (top) to south (bottom). We found a significant shift in the peak timing from southern to northern provinces (Spearman rho = 0.43, P = 0.02). Provinces from north to south: Arica, Iquique, Antofagasta, Atacama, Coquimbo, Valparaíso - San Antonio, Viña del Mar - Quillota, Aconcagua, Metropolitano Norte, Metropolitano Occidente, Metropolitano Central, Metropolitano Oriente, Metropolitano Sur, Metropolitano Sur Oriente, O'Higgins, Maule, Ñuble, Concepción, Talcahuano, Bio Bio, Arauco, Araucanía Norte, Araucanía Sur, Valdivia, Osorno, Del Reloncaví, Aysén, Magallanes, Chiloé.
