About West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus (WNV) is a virus that is found in wild birds and carried by mosquitoes. It was first identified in
the province of West Nile, Uganda in 1937. Since then it has been identified in Egypt, Asia, Israel, South Africa, parts of Europe and Australia. In 1999, it was present in the United States for the first time, and in the summer
of 2001 was discovered in birds in southern Ontario. Cases have since begun to appear in other Provinces.

West Nile virus affects wild birds, mainly Crows and Blue Jays, and can be transmitted to humans through
the bite of a mosquito.

The risk to humans is very low

  • Most people who get infected with West Nile virus do not get sick.

  • Those most at risk include persons over 50, and those persons with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms include:

  • mild fever

  • headache

  • stiff neck

  • muscle weakness

  • skin rash and swollen lymph glands.

In rare cases, the illness may be more serious causing encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).
There is no specific treatment and no vaccine against West Nile virus.
