West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird.
Severe illnesses resulting from the West Nile virus may affect people of any age, although people over 60 years old, those who have cancer, diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, and those who have previously received organ transplants are more at risk. Most individuals who are infected with the virus will not experience any illness.
