6. Viruses don't count as microbes. They are non-living.

They canít multiply without a host, and what matters for that is population density, not heat.

On edit: Habitat loss caused by climate change can cause wild animals to come nearer to human populations, and if they animals harbor viruses, then that would be added risk.
