Click here for the West Nile Weekly, August 13th, 2018

We are about a month beyond peak risk for 2018, and risk this week has fallen to about half of peak risk. We expect around 6 counties to report cases this week. Last week there was some indication that mosquito infections might continue to rise, but this week mosquito infections fell back to exactly average for this point in the year, and we do not anticipate any surprises as the season begins to wind down. Additionally, the state has dried up a littleĀ - previously it was more humid than normal, and this was expected to enhance mosquito activity.
