In brief: West Nile Virus
Virus activity correlates with mosquito activity: is highest from july to october, and in warmer climates such as the southern us, virus activity is high year-round.
Age and immune status do not seem to affect susceptibility to infection. However, older or immunocompromised individuals are at higher risk of neuroinvasive disease. [6] there is no clear evidence of a predilection for either sex.
