Background Info

An RNA virus, the West Nile virus belongs to the family flavivirus. Closely related to Yellow fever and St. Louis encephalitis, West Nile virus is primarily transferred by the bite of an infected mosquito. The mosquitoes become infected through consuming blood of infected humans or other primates. Many people do not present any symptoms at all. If they do, fever, chills, body aches, nausea, fatigue, and vomiting can all occur. Currently there is no vaccine or medication to treat WNV.
