Welcome to the West Nile Virus Channel

The West Nile virus is a flavivirus commonly found in Africa, West Asia, and the Middle East. The virus can infect humans, birds, mosquitoes, horses, and some other mammals. Infected people typically develop symptoms between 3 and 14 days after they are bitten by an infected mosquito. About 4 out of 5 people who are infected with West Nile virus will not show any symptoms at all. Up to 20 percent of the people who become infected have flu-like symptoms (known as West Nile fever). There are no reliable statistics available on the number of West Nile virus cases that occur worldwide; however, in 2006, 4,261 human cases of West Nile virus were reported in the United States, including 174 deaths.
