West Nile Virus

West Nile virus (WNV) is transmitted by a bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected with WNV by feeding on infected birds and can transmit the virus to other animals, birds, and humans. Most people infected by WNV never experience symptoms. Few will experience relatively mild illness, with symptoms such as fever, headache, muscle pains, a skin rash, swollen lymph nodes, and photophobia. Less than one percent of people infected with WNV become seriously ill.
