WEST NILE VIRUS

 

West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne disease first detected in the United States in 1999.  WNV first appeared in California in 2003 and by 2004, WNV had spread to all 58 counties. Risk of infection is reduced through the concerted actions of local and state public health and vector control agencies. People can protect themselves by taking precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.  - CDPH
