chilled brood

I have supplied a weak hive with a frame of brood from a strong hive.

At inspection I have noticed that some of the bees emerged (there is much more bees), however, there is still quite many capped cells.

I hope the rest of the bees will emerge later, but what if the brood got chilled and they won't. Will the workers bees remove these dead brood?

Im asking because I dont want them bees to get any disease.

They probably just haven't emerged yet. If they are dead the bee's will clean them out.
Chilled brood doesn't cause disease other than sometimes if it's only a little chilled it can cause chalkbrood. If they die they just get removed. But they will probably emerge.
