Science presentation on West Nile Virus.
There is no vaccine, antibiotic, or antidote to help cure the the West Nile Virus.
A blood test may show a rising level of antibodies.
The virus is acquired by an animal being bitten by an infected mosquito.
Wear mosquito repellent.
I have learned that West Nile Virus comes from birds and not mosquitos and that it can cause immune system problems.
