In brief: Low likelihood
Most cases of west nile fever resolve spontaneously and completely.
However, sometimes fatigue, headache, weakness, movement disorders, and concentration problems persist for weeks or months. Severe neuroinvasive disease can result in death or permanent disability. Mortality usually results from progressive neuronal dysfunction, cerebral edema, and respiratory failure.http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvb.

In brief: Rarely
But in severe cases the entire body will undergo multi organ failure.
A good reason to stay away from bugs.
