What exactly is the West Nile virus and how can one avoid it?
I am watching the news and I heard that there is an outbreak of this, what exactly is this and how can we avoid contacting this virus?
West Nile virus is a virus carried by mosquitoes. The only way to get the virus is to be bitten by a mosquito which is carrying the virus. The virus comes from birds that mosquitoes bite. People at higher risk of becoming very sick are small children and the elderly because of low immune systems. A healthy adult may contract it and feel a little sick but not even realize what it is and fully recover.
