We are several weeks beyond the peak of transmission for 2018, but about half of cases are expected to occur this week. Mosquito infection rates have continued to rise, but have not risen faster than expected for this point in the year. Humidity is still higher than usual. We expect that around nine counties will report at least one human case for this week, which places us slightly above 2017, an average year for WNV in SD.
