West Nile Virus Update


The latest map from the APHIS site showing veterinary data (last updated January 20, 2004).


This map was compiled by the CDC and presented on the APHIS site.


This map from the USGS site shows the cumulative veterinary positive WNV tests by county. It may include more than just horses, but does not include human or bird cases. Equines are a sentinel species in that they usually develop symptoms of the disease before humans are at risk.  It appears fro this map that the disease has started to decline in the Eastern states and has pretty much reached the West coast completely its march across America.
