Click here for the West Nile Seasonal July 31st, 2017

Based on all data available at the end of July, we expect to see 58 cases in SD in 2017. This forecast is slightly down from last week's predictions, but is the same as predictions made two weeks ago. The weather and mosquito data we receive look stable and predictable, and there is no reason to believe that 2017 will be anything but an average year. However, this still means substantial transmission, with dozens of cases diagnosed and many more unobserved.
