West Nile Fever infections occur sporadically in Israel

West Nile fever cases are reported in Israel every summer. So far in 2012, a total of 46 human cases have been reported. Since there is no vaccine or treatment for infections with West Nile fever virus, travellers to areas where the West Nile Fever virus has been found can reduce their risk of exposure to this virus by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites.
