American Academy of Microbiology publishes West Nile virus report
Date:7/18/2013

rado in Denver.

To help answer the many questions people have about this multi-faceted virus, the American Academy of Microbiology has issued a new report entitled FAQ: West Nile Virus. The Academy convened twenty-two of the world's leading experts on West Nile virus in March, 2013 to consider and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about West Nile virus. The resultant report provides non-technical, science-based answers to questions that people may have about the virus.

Some of the questions the report considers include:

  • How did West Nile virus spread across the country so quickly?
  • Why do some people get West Nile fever or neuroinvasive disease?
  • Can the severity of West Nile neuroinvasive disease change from year to year?
  • Can West Nile virus outbreaks be prevented?

FAQ: West Nile virus is the latest offering in a series of reports designed to provide a rapid response to emerging issues or to highlight the role of microbes in daily life. Previous FAQ reports have covered topics like the role of microorganisms in cleaning up oil spills and the central role of yeast in the production of beer.
