In brief: West Nile Virus

West Nile virus infection typically begins with the abrupt onset of fever, chills, muscle aches, headache, and flu-like symptoms.
If these are things you are experiencing, then reach our promptly to your physician to be evaluated and treated as early intervention is valuable in preventing long term complications.

In brief: West Nile Virus

Although West Nile Virus is now in most of the U.
S., the majority of mosquitoes are not infected. You would have to be bitten by an infected mosquito to develop West Nile Virus Fever. It causes a flu-like syndrome in 20% of those infected. It causes neuroinvasive disease.
