Click here for the West Nile Weekly, July 16th 2018

This is the height of the season in an above-average year for WNV. We expect that 14 counties will report at least one human case during this week. Several counties have fallen back to having just average risk for this week, but average risk during the peak of the season still means substantial transmission, and the majority of counties are still at above-average risk. Mosquito infection rates seem to have stabilized and temperatures are average for this point in the year. However, humidity is still high and this is enhancing estimated risk.
