West Nile Virus in USA (update)

Although many localities are finding mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus, only 6 human cases of the disease have been reported by 4 states (California, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas). One death was recorded in California. Since there is no vaccine or treatment for West Nile fever, travellers to areas where this virus has been found can reduce their risk of exposure by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites.
