Today, some mosquitoes can carry the West Nile virus. Mosquito bites may lead to West Nile virus infection and, in turn, mild or serious illness.
Infection may result in no symptoms, in mild illness such as 'West Nile fever', or in serious neurological illness such as encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).
Everyone is at risk, and precautions are necessary to protect yourself.
